Event description

Description

In the last twenty years, the numbers of Asian elephants have been halved due to habitat loss, human-wildlife conflict, poaching and capture. There are now an estimated thirty-five thousand living in the wild.

Elephant rescues are rare, unpredictable and often life threatening. After waiting 2.5 years, actor/director Ashley Bell and a team of elephant rescuers led by world renowned Asian elephant conservationist and Time Magazine's Hero of Asia, Lek Chailert, embark on a daring 480 mile mission across Thailand to rescue Noi Na, a 70-year old partially blind trekking elephant and bring her to freedom.

Love & Bananas aims to ignite a new way of thinking about Asian elephants, and show what can be done to prevent their extinction.

LIVE MUSIC with DAVY SIMONY
Davy Simony is a folk-roots singer-songwriter originally from Kuranda, a village in the rainforest of Far North Queensland. Now based in Melbourne, Davy has been making waves in the local scene for the past few years, as well as touring nationally and internationally.

With influences that span from Angus & Julia Stone to Fat Freddy's Drop, Simony’s work is defined by his grounded and heartfelt style of songwriting. His live performances are not to be missed. Boasting the powerful energy of a ‘one-man-band,’ Simony takes to guitar, foot percussion and live loops.

DINNER by Alisha's Café Collective
Your ticket price includes a light but nourishing, delicious six dish, vegan, gluten-free standing-mingle canapé dinner by our caterer Alisha's Cafe Collective. Alisha's Cafe Collective is a passion project, fueled by the heart and soul of Husna Pasha. Husna is dedicated to bringing people together and empowering them through laughter and an appreciation of difference. “Alisha” is a portmanteau of Aliyah and Shahan, the names of Pasha’s children with husband and co-owner Nicolas Rangasamy-Shakeel. Alisha's Cafe Collective menu is plant-based, and most dishes are inspired by Rangasamy-Shakeels' Mauritian and Pasha’s Indian heritage. A portion of the cafe’s profits are donated to a charity nominated by the community and presented at monthly events.
