So you like your coffee? You’ve got to have it. One in the morning when you wake up, another on the way to work or class oh that caffeine, how you love it! But ask yourself what has coffee ever done for art? Or for that matter what has it done to help people in real need?

Well, Now Coffee is inspiring a whole new range of art works and transforming BamBOO @ Luxe Bar into a gallery as contemporary artists and designers from Perth and beyond come together with local performers to present One Sugar to Go – an eclectic art exhibition with a difference.

Available for sale via auction, artworks utilising the medium of a take-away coffee cup have been contributed by creatives from Perth, the eastern states and as far away as Glasgow, Scotland. These normally throwaway items over have been reworked and transformed into art, promoting the themes of reuse, recycle and respect – with the proceeds from sale going to the Leukemia Foundation.

One sugar to go… the event set to put an ‘up the anti’ into ‘oxidant’ as a stellar line-up of DJ’s, VJ’’s, performance art and BMX demo riders combine to showcase a cross section of contemporary culture whilst engaging community support for those affected by cancer.
