Loophole Community Centre — “an umbrella organisation providing a home to a wide array of arts and humanities projects” — appears to be on the verge of closing. Well, perhaps only at its current location (670–672 High St, Northcote), having been served an eviction notice for June 11. As a result, Loophole is asking for halp:
LOOPHOLE NEEDS A PLACE TO MOVE INTO, so if you know of any empty spaces with a kind, reasonable and community spirited owner, especially if you are that owner, please contact us.
We are looking ASAP for an aspiring film-maker to shoot a documentary while these few weeks unfold.
In the interim, we are in dire need of STORAGE SPACES to temporarily house components of the centre (eg bike workshop, library, etc)
ALTERNATE SPACES where user groups can temporarily relocate, eg Food Not Bombs, Rad Play Group, Rad Choir, Sew Radical etc
Donations of HANDS and hearts to help with all aspects of MOVING
MONEY, stop in or donate online. Moving is expensive.
WRITE A LETTER, SIGN PETITION AND GET ON THE PHONE
COME TO OUR EXHIBITION on June 8th, buy rad art, get inspired and keep our Loophole open.
DROP IN, stop by, show us some love…
Thanks and blessings to all our volunteers, patrons and everyone who has supported and continues to support Loophole over the years. You made our community centre a castle.
