Landfill Harmonic tells the tale of a Paraguayan musical youth group of kids that live next door to one of South American's largest landfills. They have fossicked the garbage and made instruments entirely out of the thrown away rubbish they have found. This unlikely orchestra was catapulted into the world arena when their story went viral.

Under the guidance of their music director, they have to learn to navigate this new world away from the landfill and into arenas and sold out concerts. This orchestra was a source of hope for their town when a natural disaster devastates their community. A must see film that's a testament to the transformative power of music and the resilience of the human spirit.

The presentation by Kim Pearce, co-founder of The Possibility Project, a Sydney-based social enterprise, will cover the topics of powerful entrepreneurial attitudes that create transformational projects, like slumwear 108, the slow clothing line, and the sparrow sanitation. You're invited to be inspired by how ordinary people can make extraordinary choices with what they already have.

The Possibility Project collaborates with slum communities in India, moving between two seemingly disparate worlds to build social justice programs. Why not subscribe to the website and do a little shopping while you're there.
