With only 13 days to go until our April 5th Market, Northern Regards is excited to welcome a very special kind of stall…
Creating a Welcome
Creating a Welcome is an idea dreamt up by a few friends who were looking for a way to resist the way our government is dealing with people seeking asylum in Australia.
“We wanted to contribute, in a practical way, to a more just and compassionate approach to our fellow human beings in crisis. We found that we were all people with some crafty skills up our sleeves, so we putting together a collection of our creative work and offering it for sale to raise funds to donate to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.“
The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre is a community organisation working directly with asylum seekers to provide basic necessities such as food, housing, healthcare and legal assistance. We love it!
Creating a Welcome invites creative folk to use their hands, hearts and minds, as well as their skills and convictions, to effect social and political change.
Creating a Welcome invites you to come and visit them at Northern Regards Artisan Market. Have a look at their gorgeous creations (pick them up and give them a cuddle!) and if you see anything you’d like to take home with you, you can consider your purchase a small act of peaceful resistance of your own.
Northern Regards Artisan Market on Saturday 5th April from 11am til 4pm at the Northcote Social Club
We look forward to seeing you there!
