As part of the #noexcuseforabuse campaign run by Women’s Aid Organisation, Kanvas Sessions will host a charity night that unites musicians and artists for a common cause. The evening of performances takes place this Saturday 26 April at Merdekarya (from 8.30pm)/

Unlike a straightforward gig, the songwriters will tell the backstory of their songs in between their performances, while artists paint or sketch their responses to the music at the same time. The musician line-up includes Hameerudin Zawawi, Narmi, Brian Gomez, Razlan Shah and Darren Ashley. They will be joined by artists Kara Inez, Sharon Chin and Anna Henna.

The cover charge is RM10 and Merdekarya encourages you to donate more to your tickets. 80% of the proceeds will go to Women’s Aid Organisation for the fight against domestic abuse.
