Optus RockCorps was an idea between friends after the 9/11 attacks in America; a way to bond and strengthen communities all over the world while educating a younger generation about caring for a community, and it’s now hitting Sydney. To get involved, a person just needs to donate four hours of their time to one of the partner charities.
For this simple and much appreciated donation, the volunteer will receive tickets to an exclusive Optus RockCorps event to be held at the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney that is set to feature both Australian and international acts. 4 hours, 1 ticket – that’s the message.
To celebrate the Australian launch, artist Judd Shoppee created a large, colourful mural inspired by the themes of volunteering and music, against the backdrop of the final gig at the Hordern Pavilion yesterday. The coolest bit about the mural is that it was painted in just four hours to show what can be achieved in that time frame.
Sounds pretty rad right? Stay tuned to Lost At E Minor over the next couple of months for more information and lots of special content around the initiative.
