The Colour Box Studio Crew and Greens MP Colleen Hartland presents Keep Colour Box Studio Cranking!

6pm 30 April at Colour Box Studio, 236 Nicholson Street, Footscray.

In a last-ditch effort, at the eleventh hour, the Western Suburbs community will come together for a crowd-funding benefit to ensure the doors of Colour Box Studio remain open, while enjoying some of the best performance and musical talent from the West and beyond.

For one night only Colour Box Studio will be transformed into a pumping, singing, dancing melting pot of performers and money giving. The evening will showcase the best of the multicultural, multifaceted Western Suburbs talent, raw, and all for a good cause.

Colour Box Studio is a community creative hub in Footscray. It is a multifunctional pop up art space which changes programming month to month and is 100% volunteer run.

The Colour Box Studio team is running a 7 week Pozible campaign to raise a minimum of $7000 (but dream of reaching $12 500) to keep the studio’s doors open and the community arts programs running.

1st May 2013 is the last day to raise the target amount, the day following this event. If it is not reached Colour Box Studio faces an uncertain future.

“Through this Pozible campaign we invite you to contribute to Colour Box Studio and help us support, showcase and nurture the creative community around us. More than 100 artists have been part of Colour Box Studio to days and we hope to welcome many many more. But we can only do it with your help” said Amie Batalibasi, Founder and Volunteer Director of Colour Box Studio.

“I only just discovered this amazing community space and to hear that its future was uncertain was heartbreaking. I had to do something and fast with only 2 weeks of the Pozible campaign left. So I threw everything behind this gig. Based on the amazing community response so far, I’m feeling confident we’re going reach our target on the night.” said Colleen Hartland Greens MP for the Western Suburbs.
