Summary

Sound Relief DVD, owned by Peter Auty. Sound Relief was a rock music concert held simultaneously at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and the Sydney Cricket Ground on 14 March 2009. The event was organised to raise funds for those affected by the February 2009 Victorian bushfires, with the proceeds from the Melbourne Concert and half of the proceeds of the Sydney Concert going to the Red Cross Victorian Bushfire Appeal. The other half of the Sydney proceeds went to the Queensland Premier's Disaster Relief Appeal to help flood victims in Queensland.

Part of a collection that documents the life of Peter Auty, illustrating his colourful and interesting life, and why he was well loved by his community, recognized in the Victorian Parliament, and awarded two medals posthumously for the important role he played on and following Black Saturday. This collection forms part of the Victorian Bushfires Collection. This large and diverse collection was established following Black Saturday and includes a multi-disciplinary collection of artefacts, images and stories to record the experience and impact of bushfires across Victoria's landscape, ecology and history.
