The Sapphires
Thursday, July 04, 2019
8:00 PM - 10:30 PM
Sapphires
The Sapphires is one of Australia’s best-loved stories. This multiple award- winning musical play, that inspired the film, is coming to (insert location/venue) stage for the first time.

Four young Aboriginal women from regional Australia, who like singing country music, suddenly get the chance to change their tune and their lives. Wearing sequins and armed only with microphones they find themselves trying to spread joy in the hell that is the Vietnam War.

The Sapphires is a funny, heart-warming tale inspired by the true story of Tony Brigg’s mother – the incredible journey of four Yorta Yorta Women, who sing Motown hits against the backdrop of personal change and massive social upheaval. It is an energetic, fun and engaging play that affirms life and the realisation of dreams.

Mission Songs
Friday, July 12, 2019
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Presented by Jessie Lloyd, Mission Songs Project is performed as a quartet with a range of Indigenous performers from around Australia. Profoundly moving, Mission Songs Project reveals what daily was like for Indigenous Australians on Christian missions and state-run settlements.

Searching for the family songs that were sung around the kitchen table, Jessie Lloyd explores the day to day life on the missions, settlements and reserves through music. From cultural identity to love and loss, these rare songs consist of almost forgotten stories that can now shed light into the history of our Indigenous elders, families and communities.

Mission Songs Project faithfully explores the musical journey of Indigenous Australian music as the Mission Songs Quartet connects the traditional with contemporary, revealing the continuation of cultural practice and song traditions into the 21st Century.

Ride-sourcing and Tax (Sole traders)
Wednesday, July 31, 2019
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Australian Taxation Office
Do you provide ride-sourcing services for a fare; working through a facilitator such as Uber, SheSafe, Shebah or GoCatch?

Do you know how income tax, the goods and services tax (GST) applies to your earnings?

Ride-sourcing is taxi-travel for GST purposes. If you have a ride-sourcing enterprise, you need:

an Australian Business Number (ABN)
to register for GST from the day you start
to pay GST on the full amount of every fare
to keep records of income and expenses for both GST and income tax purposes
You can then claim GST credits for expenses associated with your ride-sourcing enterprise.

Come along to this one-hour session where we'll help you to understand how to get it right.

Note: If you already have a business structure, this session is designed for sole traders.
