Musicians have banded together to support the people in Vanuatu after Cyclone Pam tore her way through the country in March. It’s on Sunday at The Wesley Anne in Northcote, where you’ll see the likes of local legend David Bridie, Charles Jenkins, James Henry, Phil Wales and a tonne more live acts. Film maker Charlie Hill Smith’s documentaries will be up on the big screen throughout the day as well as clips from Vanuatu Women’s Water Music. There’s a raffle offering ridiculously good prizes so make sure you bring your spare change and then some. There’s a limit on the capacity so make sure you get down early. It kicks off at 3pm and costs just $25 bucks to get in.

Next Monday is the first day of ‘Design Matters – International Design Week’. This annual, week-long festival attracts an impressive line-up of high-profile Australian and international designers, exhibitions and events. The Victorian Design Exhibition – a free event in the City Square – will officially launch the event, where more than 80 award-winning designs will be shown. Other exhibitions on offer include Inspiration by Design: Word and image from the Victoria and Albert Museum at the State Library.

And just a quick one to round up, if you’re looking for something to do on the Saturday, the third annual We Love Life Festival has a new venue at CERES. It will take place between 11am and 11pm and will have raw food, yoga, live music from local artists, health and nutrition, art, sustainable living and market produce. A whole bunch of stuff, and is great to take the kids along too as its family friendly AND completely free!
