NOISE for Darfur

On the 28th of October 2006 DAN organised and ran NOISE for Darfur at Federation square to coincide with Refugee Week 2006. This cross-cultural event featured a range of musical performances, a welcome by Melbourne mayor John So, a dance performance by the Darfur community, informative speakers and the debut screening of Noise on Film, a film created by DAN volunteers in which a range of influential Australians including the Governor of Victoria David de Kretser and local members of the Darfur community answered the question, 'Why should Australian's make noise for Darfur?'.

The event also included a childrens workshop, photographic exhibition and a multimedia tent. Triple J's Hack program covered the day as their special on Refugee Week providing nation-wide coverage of the event, and local community radio station Syn FM also broadcasted live on the day and invited a range of refugees from the Darfur community to speak on air.
