Celebrate Refugee Week at Darling Square this year and support the positive contributions made by refugees in Australian Society, on until Saturday 26th June! Darling Square will focus on providing great food, art and music to raise funds to support the work of the Asylum Seekers Centre.

There will be the brilliant work of refugee-run kitchen Uma Curry & Roti, Bucket Boys, and social enterprise Art Aid to raise funds for this great cause. There will also be a multicultural DJ performance by You Know Dam Right on the 26th.

Food

Darling Square is home to refugee and asylum seeker led curry house Uma Curry & Roti, the new sister of the award-winning social enterprise, Parliament on King. The curry house gives vital work opportunities to refugees and serves a worldly and inclusive menu. Built with everyone in mind, the meat offerings are halal, half the curries are vegan and they’re all gluten-free. Swing by during the week to get your $15 deal with two curries, roti, rice & pickles. $5 of your purchase will go toward the Asylum Seekers Centre.

Art

Art that looks good, feels good and does good. Art Aid is a social enterprise empowering artists and collectors to respond to humanitarian and ecological issues around the world. Pimp your pad with colour, culture and good karma from some of Australia’s most conscientious and contemporary artists, knowing that 33% of the price will be donated to the Asylum Seekers Centre. Check out some of the remarkable prints available in the pop-up gallery at Bucket Boys bar.

Music

Enjoy a hearty curry and beer whilst experiencing a fun, multicultural DJ set by You Know Dam Right on Saturday 26th June, 5-9 pm. You Know Dam Right unites cultures through musical journeys, with a focus on afro-beats and world house.
