This year Australia has seen a bushfire season of unprecedented proportions, with a resultant ecological and humanitarian disaster on a scale never seen before.
At time of writing, 10.7 million hectares of land have been burned; thousands have been displaced from their homes; an estimated half a billion animals have perished; human lives have been lost. The fires still set to burn in the weeks and months to come.
In light of these ongoing events, and the long road to recovery yet ahead for Australian communities, the RCM Students’ Union is holding a charity concert in support of and solidarity with those affected, with all proceeds towards relief and recovery efforts including the Vinnies Bushfire Appeal, Red Cross Fund, and WIRES.
This concert features the talents of RCM students and alumni, and a celebratory programme of all-Australian environmental and ecology-themed works.
