Walk in Her Shoes for a week
and help her step out of poverty.
8 – 14 March 2016
Women and girls in developing countries walk an average of 6km every day to collect water, food and firewood for their families.
By signing up to Walk in Her Shoes and getting friends to sponsor you, you can raise funds to support CARE Australia’s vital projects that help reduce the distance women and girls have to walk by providing clean water and nutritious food close to home. This means girls can spend more time in school, women can earn an income and together they can help their communities step out of poverty.
2016 will be the biggest year yet with an anticipated 5,000 participants across Australia aiming to raise more than $1 million.
The Brunswick Music Festival has been held annually in March since 1989 and is one of Victoria’s premier music festivals and a major multicultural event for Australia. Now in its 28th year, the Festival program showcases ethnic, indigenous, acoustic and traditional music, featuring local musicians, alongside interstate and international guests.Sydney Road Street Party 6 March 2016

The Brunswick Music Festival is proudly presented by Performing Arts Moreland with the continued support of principal public partner Moreland City Council.
Such a great exhibition. So much to see so if you’re planning to go allow a couple of hours. And don’t miss the kids ‘Cats in the Studio’ to create some fun photo’s in the style of #AndyWarhol and #Ai Wei Wei at the National Gallery of Victoria until 24 April 2016.
The exhibition explores the significant influence of these two artists on modern art and contemporary life, focusing on the parallels, intersections and points of difference between the two artists’ practices. The exhibition at the NGV presents more than 300 works, including major new commissions, immersive installations and a wide representation of paintings, sculpture, film, photography, publishing and social media.
