TRESPASS:. public forum:. 6 November 2008

When: Thursday 6 November 2008, 7pm
Where: RMIT building 50, Orr St, Carlton

TRESPASS is the subject of our next lecture night. This idea has emerged from our probono committee's recent involvement with the Student Housing Action Collective (SHAC), a group currently occupying a vacant Melbourne University property in protest against the cost of student housing.

We'll be joined by members of two very different groups that have both grabbed media attention recently for their unconventional mis-use of urban space: Cara Wiseman, a participant in last September’s PARKing day in Melbourne and two residents from SHAC.

Note: We will be requesting a small donation of a needed item for the SHAC residents rather than the usual gold coin donation. Some needed items are listed below:

soy - milk - rice - beans/pulses - canned tomatoes/tomato paste - onions - honey - peanut butter - muesli - tempeh - walnuts/nuts - coffee - vacuum cleaner - can opener (!) seedlings - esp. shade friendly plants - seed raising mix (!) bread knife (!) knife sharpener (!) master plunger (!) towels - bath mat - face towels - tea towels - lamps - YOU - computer - coffee perculator large - fairylights
