Each year, Amnesty International’s Townsville Action Group hosts a concert to celebrate International Human Rights Day, and highlight the work of Amnesty International protecting and promoting human rights across Australia and around the globe.
The 2016 Townsville Human Rights Day Concert, held at the Old Courthouse Theatre, will showcase a variety of talented musicians from the region. The concert is sure to be a positive event that brings the community together in support of Amnesty International and human rights.
This year, the Human Rights Day concert will be headlined by talented artist Dana Martin. Dana was the winner of the Human Rights songwriting competition at the Palm Creek Folk Festival in June this year. Her catchy song “International Transgender Visibility Day” sends a powerful and positive message to listeners about how far we’ve come in supporting the rights of transgender people and allowing them the freedom to be their true selves.
Dana will be accompanied at the concert by a number of other talented acts, including The Misty Mountains musicians from the Atherton Tableland, Townsville folk group ‘Friends of Pete Seeger,’ and Jacqui Stock, runner up of the Palm Creek songwriting competition.
Come along to the Old Courthouse Theatre, on the corner of Sturt and Stokes Streets in Townsville, on December 3rd at 7:00pm, and enjoy a bit of song and celebration of human rights. For more information, don’t forget to follow the Amnesty International Townsville Action group on Facebook.
Entry is free, although people are encouraged to make a donation to Amnesty International. Amnesty International is an independent, global movement of people who campaign courageously for human rights works and who workd tirelessly to make sure that the human rights of all people are protected.
