There are some things that I just will not say no to. Some things speak to my heart more than others. This is why I am breaking my own blogging rule, posting about an event and having a giveaway while another one is still running. Let’s call it a Flash Friday Giveaway with Heart shall we?
In just one weeks time, on Friday December 14th two of my most loved things will come together for one night at Hamer Hall in Melbourne. Great music and a lot of heart and soul.
The Key of Sea, brings some of Australia’s finest (and some of my own favourite) musicians together with Australian-based musicians from refugee/asylum seeker backgrounds. Collaboration, music and voice.
Due to it being the silly season, I am not able to make this concert. Instead of being able to sit in the beautiful surrounds of Hamer Hall, I will be attending a staff end of year dinner, dropping a child at their end of year school disco, and spending time with my parents, who will be flying in for the weekend. All things I am looking forward to, even with missing The Key of Sea.
The night will feature The Tim Rogers Polyxeni, Jinja Safari with Kinfe Geshu, Brous with Awaz, Chet Faker with The Royal Swazi Spa, and The Tiger & Me with Murtaza Jafari, with special guests MC Rockwiz’s Brian Nankervis and Waleed Aly.
Profits from The Key of Sea concert series will be distributed to Australian refugee and asylum seeker charities. The Asylum Seekers Resource Centre, The Human Rights Arts and Film Festival and SAIL (Sudanese Australian Integrated Learning Program).
This concert is part of Art Centre Melbourne’s Summer Season and one I am very sorry to miss. The Summer Season has some great performances. Keep an eye on the Arts Centre and the link here.
If you are, or will be in Melbourne on Friday 14th of December I have a double pass to give away to The Key of Sea. To be in the running for the tickets, leave a comment on this post telling me what you just can’t say no to.
One double pass valued at $98 to The Key of Sea on Friday 14th December at Hamer Hall, Melbourne.

This is a fast and furious giveaway – tickets will be mailed to winner early in the week, so comments close Sunday 9th December at 6pm.
Disclaimer: I have worked with 360 IMMERSE on a number of Arts Centre events. However, for this event I have received nothing. The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre is an organisation I have raised funds for through running in the past. Human Rights is something I will never stop banging on about, and I was more than happy to promote this concert and giveaway tickets.
