TRIVIA WITH A CAUSE
“Education is not for sale”
It’s time again for Trivia Night. The ARC raises awareness on important topics, offering a fun night out while visitors can do something good on the side.
Visitors will experience a night full of trivia, music, food and prices. A children’s art corner ensures that both great and small have a good time.
The cause on this evening’s agenda is the privatisation of TAFE. TAFE Community Alliance will inform visitors on the government’s education sale, allowing a lot of time and space for discussions. Trivia Night will give room to the community to get informed and sensitised, to negotiate and raise a lobby to influence decision makers.
Overall, the name-giving famous trivia game will cheer up the crowds.
Come down to Addison Road to join us for a great night, 24th May 7pm.

It is without question that every single person has a unique view on the world. What many people do not know is that in fact each human being is alone in their worlds, as the system of cognition is a closed one, but as long as we have small agreements among our world views it feels like we all belong to the same universe.
You might fall into disbelief now but if you think about it you will prove it right: It is all about interpretation that dictates our perception. These different ways of interpretation are shown at the current art show “Personal Landscapes” the ARCCO Gallery hosts. Four artists and friends got together to show their personal landscapes, all interpreting and abstracting real subjects or experiences. From this shared theme four very different approaches resulted, and you can see the creative conversion change from artist to artist. The atmosphere of the paintings swaps from one group of paintings to the other, and gives evidence to the exceptional human mind. This is not a bad thing though. And, as we are talking about arts, it is the result that counts, not the origin of the idea or the conception of the art work.
“Personal Landscapes” is art for everyone. So come and take your last chance to visit the art show at the ARCCO Gallery this Sunday, 19th May and dive into the different worlds of the artists Kassie Dummett, Fran Hayes, Richard Magee & Martin Pisani.

The Addison Road Community Centre (ARCC) and Reverse Garbage would like to invite you to our Veggie Lunch Launch 11am, Tuesday 23 April.
The Veggie Lunch Launch celebrates the welcoming of the ‘Veggie Patch Van’ who will serve their much-loved, high quality vegetarian dishes using seasonal produce sourced from local growers. The enterprise’s whole foods philosophy extends on the ‘paddock to plate’ movement ensuring the delivery of minimally processed, full flavoured cuisine aimed at reconnecting growers with diners. The van’s artwork resembles a farm barn house surrounded by a veggie patch and is a nod to this idea.
The team behind The Veggie Patch is determined to keep its environmental impact to an absolute minimum, and hope to continually discover new and innovative ways of achieving this. All waste produced including packaging is compostable, solar panels power the cooking and the van itself runs on recycled vegetable oil!
ARCC and Reverse Garbage will create a ‘veg-alfresco’ atmosphere for diners with furniture and decorations made exclusively from reuse materials saved from landfill. With a continued focus on environmental programs at The Addison Road Centre, all leftover organic waste and scraps from The Veggie Patch Van will be composted at the centre’s Community Compost.
Event: Veggie Lunch Launch – we welcome the Veggie Patch Van to ARCC!
Time & date: 11am, Tuesday 23 April
Location: The Addison Road Community Centre
142 Addison Road
We look forward to welcoming you to this delicious, environmentally friendly event!

The ARCC is actively supporting a cause, and trying to get others to support it as well by using Trivia as a tool. The ARCC builds partnerships and supports community actions and concerns Trivia is an example of how we create forums and share spaces by speaking up, drawing attention to an important issue and directing decision makers towards a solution.
OUR ADVOCACY TRIVIA AIMS:
This CAUSE IS “EDUCATION Is NOT FOR SALE”
TAFE IS TOO IMPORTANT TO LOSE.

10am FRIDAY 5th April – We are inviting members of the public, whether that be individuals, government representatives, TAFE lecturers and students, ARCC Members etc to contribute a ‘waste’ item to be placed in any of the boxes that are part of the art installation.
After the exhibition we will work with students at Arts & Design Schools to create a new sculpture from the items – again practising reuse and the upcycling of materials – which will go on display at ARCC/Reverse Garbage. Individuals are encouraged to bring the reuse items with them when they visit the gallery.
