Building Bridges, an initiative presented by the Refugee Action Coalition and the Refugee Art Project, is returning this year to raise funds and awareness for the need for a more humanitarian approach to those seeking asylum in Australia.

The festival, which began last year, will feature various Aussie acts including the Rhythm Hunters, Mohsen Soltani, Hazy Cloud, Dirty Sweet Nothings, and Terry Mocsari.

There will be guest speeches from refugee advocates and those who have achieved asylum in Australia.

The festival will be held at The Standard in Darlinghurst on Friday August 30 from 7pm-midnight. Tickets are $15 if pre-booked, and $20 at the door.
