The frightening images of the devastating Australian bushfires going around the world these days are quite overwhelming. It can feel a bit hopeless; watching the news while being so far away, trying to imagine the scope and magnitude of the problem, coming to grips with the long-term impacts for people, property, flora, fauna.

We don’t want to just watch anymore. We want to help.

We're too far away to volunteer with the fire service, or rescue wildlife, or offer homes to displaced evacuees. What we can do is what we do best: singing together, standing in solidarity with one another, spreading the hope that is built on communities of people with big hearts.Join your voice and your wallet with ours, at a special ok!choir Pop Up Night supporting those impacted by the Australian bushfires.

ok!choir Pop Up nights are open for anyone to attend - no choir or singing experience is necessary. We learn a whole song in one night and finish with a tiny performance for the camera. As well as singing, you'll get to hear stories from Australians living in Berlin, about what's going on back home, and about their experiences and connections with the Australian landscape.

ok!choir director & Aussie Claire Coleman will teach us “Beds Are Burning” by Australia’s own Midnight Oil in 3 part harmonies. While the song's key question "how can we sleep while our beds are burning?" is pertinent to global governmental inaction on climate change, it was originally composed to acknowledge white Australia's history of marginalising and exploiting Indigenous Australians and their land. Since land exploitation contributes to climate change around the world, and marginalised communities are often disproportionately affected by environmental catastrophe, the song's relevance to this moment is multifaceted. It's a song that has space for sadness, and anger, but it also celebrates Australian landscapes and calls with hope and determination for change.

100% of the proceeds of this Pop Up will be donated to firefighting and bushfire relief services, and distributed among organisations working in the hardest hit areas of the east coast; the Queensland Rural Fire Service, the Victorian Bushfire Appeal, and WIRES, a NSW based wildlife rescue organisation.

The event will take place at wonderful Cassiopeia on RAW Gelände. Cassiopeia will also donate their proceeds made with every sold drink. Amazing!Come by, sing with us, have a drink, donate what you can, reach your arms out across the oceans.
