Steven Kilbey, Peter Koppes and Tim Powles of The Church, who were all last year’s most notable ARIA Hall Of Fame recipients,  announce UNIVERSE WITHIN,  an  Autism Awareness and Benefit Gig.  This special one off performance will be held at the Red Rattler in Marrickville on June 23 with an array of special guest taking to the stage, and all money raised will be donated to the not-for-profit organisation, Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect).

Autism spectrum disorders affect at least 1 in 160 people and while prevalent it is  alifelong development disorder that remains very misunderstood within the community.  Early intervention and treatment of the disorder opens up the best opportunities for progress so that many people with Autism can lead productive lives.

Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) works in partnership with families and service providers, offering evidence-based interventions for individual needs, including early intervention services, assessments, workshops, volunteer support, and outreach programs.

As well as musical performances, the UNIVERSE WITHIN Autism Awareness and Benefit Gig will also feature artworks and photographs for sale and/or auction and involvement from Aspect representatives.  What’s more, we are told that “a special treat may be in store for some church fans hampering to hear some songs from the Refo:mation” (Tim Powles).

There will be no door charge on the night.  Instead, punters are asked to be generous and dig as deep as they can by leaving a completely tax deductable donation on entry of around $60.(A tax deductible receipt can be issued)
