Changing the world has never sounded so good.
A month-long party against poverty where hundreds of music lovers from all over the country create and throw their own gigs and parties, all in aid of Oxfam’s vision of a just world without poverty.
The first ever Aussie OXJAM hit our shores last year and we’re told the response was amazing. There were some seriously wicked parties and very talented musicians gracing the OXJAM stages. With hundreds of backyard parties, jam sessions, rooftop gigs and garage bands injecting music into one’s soul and feet, Oxfam is hoping this year’s OXJAM will be even bigger and better.
In 2016, expect to see amazing, creative, passionate and talented people like you create everything from lounge room takeovers to warehouse DJ sets to backyard bush doofs and everything in between. All registered gigs goes in the running to have one of three amazing artists headline their own show, as well as a host of other incredible prizes.
The money you raise goes towards Oxfam Australia’s life changing work around the world. You can choose which area of our work your funding goes towards, or alternatively you can let Oxfam decide. When you partner with Oxfam you partner with people who are fighting for the kind of rights that people in Australia can take for granted.
Right to Water
Every human being should have access to clean water. In impoverished communities around the world, you’re helping to kick-start water and hygiene committees, providing individuals with skills and training to lead healthy lives free from water-borne disease and illness.
Right to Safety
Every human being has a right to live in safety. When an emergency hits, you’re providing people with the assistance they need to survive – clean water, hygiene facilities, food, health and nutrition advice and shelter.
Right to Equality
Every human being should be born equal. You’re helping women all over the world to achieve equal rights, empowering both men and women through our gender equality programs to eliminate violence against women, and secure fair wages and working conditions for all.
It’s not a question of why you should get involved but rather why haven’t you got involved yet?!
