Dust off your fave Aussie band t-shirt because our annual fundraiser, Ausmusic T-Shirt Day is back!
Ausmusic T-Shirt Day is a day of fun and awareness held during Ausmusic Month to celebrate Aussie music and raise urgently-needed funds for music workers in crisis.
Funds raised from the campaign go towards helping us continue our crucial work supporting musicians, managers, crew and music workers through crisis relief support, mental health and wellbeing programs, the Support Act Wellbeing Helpline, our Mentally Healthy Workplaces Program and dedicated First Nations support.
Music for Little Ears is perfect for children aged 2-5 years. Join Samantha Bartholomeusz from the Orange Regional Conservatorium for a morning of music and dancing at Orange City Library.
Music is proven to stimulate learning and literacy. Initiate little ears to classical music, singing, percussion, dancing and musical games.
Join in for the day with a talk by Dr Jordan Bailey, discussing the wood wide web and why mycelium is a key contributor to earth and soil health.
Photo-media artist Steven Cavanagh will then facilitate a workshop processing Cyanotypes and sculptural constructions using organic material collected from site.
Mondays at the Museum is a free one-hour session designed for 3–5-year-olds and their grown-ups to explore and create at Orange Regional Museum.
Each week we explore a different part of the museum before getting into a craft activity based on what we've discovered.
Mondays at the Museum are a great opportunity for parents and carers to enjoy time with their children in an educational environment and meet up with other Orange families.
