Event Details

Over the last 4 years we as “A One World Tribe” have held Playing for Change Day events in Ghana, where we had great success using this day to promote peace in the troubled Northern Region (Gonjaland)  We were even able to stop a long running tribal dispute with the power of music..


This year we are joining forces with the “Hope of Africa Productions” to bring this event to our own backyard with 50% of all profits made going to Playing for Change School Programs, and the other 50% going to Make-A-Wish Australia.


Make-A-Wish Australia was founded in 1985, and now, in their 30th year, they have granted over 8,000 wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses. Make-A-Wish wishes gives very sick children and teenagers hope for the future, strength to face the challenges of their illness, and joy from their incredible wish experience.
