The Alistair Hulett Memorial Fund

Traditions of Resistance Through Song & Struggle

The Alistair Hulett Memorial Fund is a non-profit association established in Australia after the untimely death in 2010 of singer, songwriter, political activist and social justice advocate, Alistair Hulett.

The Alistair Hulett Memorial TrustThe purpose of the Fund, in addition to preserving Alistair Hulett’s musical legacy, is:

  1. to advance, support and develop the appreciation of the art and science of music in all its aspects, including through the presentation of concerts and the production of both recorded and written music;
  2. to promote, present and preserve the traditional and multi-cultural music and song of Australia;
  3. to promote equality, justice and diversity through music, focusing on indigenous people, asylum seekers and refuges, disabled people and the homeless; and on gender rights, sexual equality, freedom from violence and the right to practise religion without bigotry or exclusion;
  4. to promote harmony and the lessening of conflict between races, religions and belief systems through music.
Working in Solidarity

A significant proportion of all funds raised by the AHMF will go to grants, prizes and scholarships awarded to musicians whose focus is on social justice issues and whose music champions those aims for which the Fund was established.

The Fund works with community groups, campaigns and organisations to raise money to impact change and further human rights through music and the arts. You can support the Fund by donating via the donations page. All merchandise sold in the Australian market, including CD’s will contribute to the Fund.
