On Sunday 21st of June more than 20 artists will perform live to their social media channels in an effort to flood their feeds with messages of positivity, hope and connection. All the artists and event team are donating their time to help foster a sense of community connection and for an opportunity to give back. All whilst celebrating international Make Music Day, an open access festival where artists can self-organise free events.
Community artist Phi Theodoros, aka the Ukulele Dream Girl is behind this new Festival, “2020 has been a difficult year for many, our social feeds have been flooded with constant crises and news reports of systemic racism. Yet many are too uncomfortable to address the underlying issues.” “I believe in the power of open conversations, the healing power music and storytelling, that’s why I put the call out to artists to see if they would help spread a little positivity to their social feeds.”
All artists contributing to the event and the team behind are all donating their time. Some artists are inviting their audiences to tip them or purchase their music while others are promoting charities and non-profits they are passionate about. Charity chosen by the Make Music ADL production team, will be promoted throughout the event, is Ink Pot Arts Heart Lands Aboriginal Cultural Program based in Mt Barker..
