Oxfam Adelaide Uni has teamed up with the fantastic local psychedelic pop rock band Zen Panda to create an out of this world gig at The Rhino Room on the 9th of August called OXJAM, and it is set to be one hell of an experience. It's always a good boogie with Zen Panda, and to top the lineup they will be joined by homegrown country rock band Dead Roo, and acoustic singer-songwriter Rachel Coppen. Does it get any better than that?
Not only will you be getting the chance to catch some wicked local acts, but by heading along to OXJAM you will also be contributing to the outstanding work that Oxfam Australia does to help people in need by fighting against poverty, both at home and overseas. Currently, in Australia their public campaigning is centered on five main areas:
- What She Makes: Ensuring the women that make the clothes sold in stores earn a living wage.
- Right to Refuge: Welcoming people who look for safety.
- Close the Gap: Achieving Indigenous health equality by 2030.
- Make Tax Fair: Making companies contribute their fair share of tax in Australia and abroad.
- Food and Climate Justice: Stopping polluters from destroying people's lives.
