First show back for 2020! 

[0:15:00] We listen to the speeches from the Invasion Day rally in Melbourne on Sunday 26th (of January), alongside some vox-pops around the day. This year, a large campaign was ‘Pay the Rent’ acknowledging that lands were never given, sovereignty was never ceded and with that, there remains an outstanding and ongoing cost due to First Nations community. The image above contains a collection of groups that audiences can donate to, helping pay the rent for the ongoing use and settlement of these lands.

[0:45:00] Luke from the Sticky Institute to discuss the upcoming Zine Fair, The Festival of the Photocopier running  on the 8 – 9th of February from 12 – 5pm at the Meat Market in North Melbourne. Luke defines zines as ‘independent publications, often photocopied, made by individual small groups with  no advertising, made for love not for profit and can break one or all those rules ’, with over 400 makers at this years festival it is going to be a wonderful collection of beauty and mayhem!
