Heaps Decent Fundraiser

People, time to dig deep and help a heaps decent cause spearheaded by two heaps decent people. Heaps Decent is a charity/project that started in 2007 when Sydneysiders Andrew Levins and Nina Agzarian hooked up with Diplo and his self-run imprint Mad Decent. Showing more philanthropic qualities than you would usually associate with DJs, this truly inspirational project has seen Levins and Agazarian travel to Wagga Wagga, Broken Hill and Campbelltown to make music with disadvantaged young Australians in schools, youth centres and juvenile detention centres. Along the way they’ve enlisted artists like A-Trak, M.I.A. and Spank Rock to help teach workshops, released some songs, helped run a 3 day event at the Opera House and made some huge breakthroughs in the lives of many young people across New South Wales.

This year, Heaps Decent became a not-for-profit charity. They get a small amount of funds from government grants and their benefactor Fuzzy but they still need to raise a lot of money to fund the project. This is where you come in. To fund the continuation of Heaps Decent’s workshops with Juvenile Justice and Key College, open a studio in Sydney and further the reach of their workshops across Australia, Andrew and Nina are hosting a fundraiser tonight.

The lineup is rad obviously, and there are prizes to be won courtesy of Mad Decent, Incu, Fuzzy, Spank Records, and PAM but the main reason you should head to Oxford Art Factory tonight is to give much needed support to this wonderful project. Tickets are 20 bones and can be bought here. Details below…
