[Update (February 24) : ACCA cancelled the address by the Biennale director promoting the event citing security concerns (Melbourne arts event halted over fears of mass protest over involvement of Transfield Services, ABC).

Monday in Melbourne:
Stage a creative protest outside ACCA during their talk promoting the 19th Biennale of Sydney, in order to draw attention to Transfield’s sponsorship of the event. Please share ideas regarding peaceful, creative actions that can be undertaken outside the venue.
The Australian Centre for Contemporary Art is located at 11 Sturt Street, Southbank, Melbourne.
