Owned and operated by Lauren Whiteley, Parallax is renowned for its photography studio and bustling events space. Whiteley, driven by a passion for community support, saw an opportunity to utilise Parallax’s platform to champion mental health awareness.

Whiteley expressed her enthusiasm for the initiative, stating, “We at Parallax are so passionate about spreading awareness, love and support in our community,” she said. “It’s a topic close to home for many of us and we want to share our space to do some good. “The night will consist of live local musicians, a prize raffle from local artists and small businesses, a sausage sizzle and all round good vibes.

“We encourage all to come along, enjoy some of Geelong’s finest talent, grab a ticket in the raffle and meet some new people or reconnect with some friends you haven’t seen for awhile.”

Attendees can look forward to live performances by Geelong’s finest musicians, including Hassall, Stefan West, Prod.Gaz, Jack Fitzgerald, Spooky Fruit, Etta Lane, and JuiceBoxx. Moreover, the event will feature a raffle boasting an array of enticing prizes generously donated by local artists and businesses.

Among the prizes up for grabs are artworks from local talents such as Joshua De Hoog and Diva Scum, along with contributions from small businesses in the area.

The ‘Gig with a Cause’ is scheduled for Saturday, March 23, commencing at 5.30 pm at Parallax, located at 46 Douro Street, North Geelong.

As the community rallies together for this noble cause, Parallax continues to be a beacon of creativity and compassion, reaffirming its commitment to making a positive impact in Geelong and beyond.
