Bindarri has been lucky enough to organise an extra Melbourne show for the amazing BeeHive Design Collective (Canada) and HipHop activist Testament

Sakura from BeeHive Design Collective will be presenting their latest mural titled “The True Cost of Coal” in large format.

Sakura will tell the story that is illustrated with loving detail within the mural of Appalachia’s (Canada) history in context to coal and the communities fight for a positive future. The creation of the story involved over two and half years of research in their local community as well as the story crafting and refinement.

See the mural in detail here:

In support of the Beehive Design Collective, Testament will drop some rhymes of revolutionary Hip Hop to make the night more festive.

We will also hear briefly from a Melbourne NGO discussing the related issues in Australia and what you can do about it.

Ken and Julia Yonetani are noted for their use of unusual materials like salt and sugar to make objects of exquisite beauty which underscore the impact of human activity on the environment.

Uranium glass, which is both beautiful and radioactive, is the chosen medium for their latest exhibition, Crystal Palace: The Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nuclear Nations. It is a response to the recent and disastrous Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant incident which followed a major earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

The work is showing at Artereal Gallery, 747 Darling Street, Rozelle in Sydney
