Event Details

A curated collection of performance, art and scientific oddities starring:

HANNAH CROFTS (All Our Exes Live In Texas)

A Cabinet of Curiosities will pop up across three rooms of the beautiful World Bar in Kings Cross, and welcome guests into a weird world of performance and scientific wonders.

Musicians and comedians sit in the bill astride performance artists, dancers and DJs. Historical scientific models and instruments will be on display beside scientifically inspired works by a selection of Sydney artists.

Proceeds from ticket sales will fund grants for life-saving research across cardiovascular, cancer and infectious diseases at Newtown’s world-class medical research facility, the Centenary Institute.

This ticket entitles you to guest list spots for you and a friend! Your name will be on the list with a +1. The Cabinet of Curiosities is best explored with someone by your side.

Young Centenary Foundation

Who we are
Founded in March 2011, YCF is a youth offshoot of the Centenary Foundation – the fundraising arm of medical research institute, the Centenary Institute. The group, which consists of about 10 volunteers aged 20–35, includes a scientist from the institute, the institute’s philanthropy coordinator and a host of young professionals.

What we do
YCF promotes the work of the Centenary Institute to a younger audience to raise awareness and funds within this demographic. Centenary Institute, a world­leading medical research facility linked to the University of Sydney and Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, focuses on cancer, cardiovascular and infectious diseases, and approaches disease at a cellular level to discover new prevention measures and early diagnosis and treatment options.

Why we do it
As young people, we often see ourselves as invincible. But we aren’t. The volunteers that make up YCF realised that if we want to protect, maintain and improve our health, then we need to do our bit to support organisations like the Centenary Institute. We do so by giving what we can to the cause, whether that is web coding skills, party planning skills, or sponsorship snagging skills. Philanthropy isn’t normally a pastime of the young, and that is something that we want to turn around.

How we do it
YCF has an ambitious programme of fundraising events planned for 2015 and beyond – but we are also on the lookout for grant opportunities and corporate sponsorships, and encourage one­off or regular donations from individuals.

Where the funds go
The funds we raise are used to recruit and retain the best young medical research scientists and to buy their supplies; buy state of the art equipment that allows new techniques to be pursued and research project times to be reduced; and help our young scientists travel to conferences to build new global collaborations. YCF is committed to specifically supporting young scientists. Most young scientists are unfortunately unable to continue the work they start at Centenary Institute during a PhD because government and university supported post­doctorate funding is hard to come by.
