Road to Refuge's summer fundraiser is bringing top-notch musical and comedic talent to the Shadow Electric for a very worthwhile cause. Musical delights for the evening will include The Drones' Gareth Liddiard, Ben Abraham, The Harpoons DJs, Nhatty Man, Arthur Penn & The Funky Ten and Cable Ties. There will also be comedic and spoken poetry performances as part of Gimme Shelter!, with Tom Ballard and duo Isabel and Rachel working their hilarious magic.

Road to Refuge is an interactive website that allows visitors to virtually go on the journey of a person seeking asylum to Australia. All of the proceeds for the event will go towards the organisation's 2016 projects and workshops. If you're unable to attend the event but would still like to contribute, you also have the option to purchase a ticket for a refugee or person seeking asylum to attend the event, which is a wonderful gift indeed.

To learn more about Road to Refuge, we highly recommend checking out their great work.
