Bring your most iconic outfits or dress up as an iconic musician, + your questionable singing talents because its Karaoke time! The theme for our second karaoke event is none other than Icons Through the Ages! Come and sing the most iconic hits that you know. Not only is singing a great way to destress (science apparently says so), but you can sing your heart out while helping others: that’s right, this is a charity event! We have a pool of $500 all of which will be donated to charity on the night. Altruism and Audacious Karaoke Singing, what’s not to love? See you there!
– Wed 2nd Sep, 6-8pm.
*We will also have a more chill breakout room for students if the main room is getting too excited about the tunes.*

We encourage all attendees to be cognizant of the indigenous lands they are living on, and also pay their respects.

Keep up-to-date by clicking going on our Facebook event. Who knows? Maybe we will show you a moodboard !!
While this event may be taking place in a digital space the UMSU Creative Arts and Disabilities Departments would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which many of us live and work: the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nations. We would also like to acknowledge that all land of so-called “Australia” is stolen and that sovereignty was never ceded.
You Are Not Your Productivity Online Workshop
This workshop will be run by UMSU Disabilities Officer Srishti Chatterjee and explores “Redefining Productivity Under Capitalism.”
It focuses on the capitalistic tendency to hold a being’s value central to the purpose they serve in production processes. This leads to the exploitation of natural resources, almost mindlessly, as if the planet is a slave to capitalism. Not only that, but also, as humans, we are very likely to consider ourselves worth only our productivity.
Especially during these times of crisis, it is important to understand and value people and the planet beyond its resourcefulness defined under existing classist, racist and gendered power structures. This workshop will focus on redefining these structures and focus on how to value things deeply, deeper than the immediate purposes we serve in production chains.
To attend this event please register using this link https://www.trybooking.com/book/event?eid=619891& and we’ll send you Zoom call in details
We acknowledge that this workshop was planned and will be facilitated on the stolen land of the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation. We’d also like to acknowledge the owners of the lands from which participants call in from. Australia does not exist. This always was and always will be Aboriginal land.
Come and join the Disabilities Department online through Zoom to meet students and have a chat.
Social institutions have a huge impact on our mental and physical health, and the kind of help we are able to access. Queer people suffer the brunt of mental and physical health practices that aren’t suited to or accepting of them.
We present to you a warm, comfortable social collective for y’all to be gay, munch on some snacks and chat about anything- that terrible lecture you have to go to, or your favourite anime. Safe spaces for the winnnn! ♥ come have funnnn
This collective is autonomous to queer and questioning people with disabilities: mental, physical, visible and invisible.
