Ex Ponto / Fundraiser for First Nations fire-affected community
January 30 @ 9:00 pm$10
About this Event
As fires have recently struck the East Coast of this sacred land, it has lead to significant destruction and loss of masses of flora and fauna and sadly the lives of peoples. Very sadly, many First Nations people’s have been affected by these tragic circumstances with losses of homes, severe damage to property and important parts of the landscape. As a result, this fundraiser is to support some of these communities with critical costs to cover expenses such as temporary relocation costs and other basic amenity and emergency relief costs to assist during this very difficult time.
This event is presented by Loop Project Space, featuring:
