UWA Arts Union

Organised by:
UWA Arts Union

So we really didn’t want to get involved with any ‘Netflix and Chill’, but the Arts Union had to give some credit to one of our favourite ways to procrastinate. Without our favourite TV shows and Reid Collab, we might almost have time to study - what a crime. But what better way to forget about those mid-sems than getting dressed up for an 85 year old legacy and raising thousands of dollars for charity than Prosh?

While purple may be the new gnome, on the 13th of April, AUrange is the New Black for the Arts Union! Join us to raise as much money as your beautiful, criminal face can get you for this year’s amazing charities - Bicycles for Humanity, Headspace Osborne Park, FoodBank, Tiny Sparks and StarKick. Check out the official Prosh event (https://www.facebook.com/events/1694570107467483/) for more info.

Grab your orange jumpsuits and forget your lawyers as you join the Arts Union for the much anticipated Prosh 2016!

4.20am: RAVE
Come down to Oak Lawn from 4:20am to cut some shapes. We'll be droppin the bass before you pick up your tins. Featuring DJs and pancakes by Red Frogs Australia.

Pick up your papers and tins from Oak Lawn – don't forget you'll need your UWA student card to sign out tins.

6.15am: MOVE
Buses will be taking clubs and faculty societies to different locations all across Perth, so get on and start selling. You can also head to Stirling Highway to jump on a Transperth bus - bring your Smart Rider - but you cannot sell papers on public transport at any time.

7am: SELL
Shake your money maker (aka your tin) and raise as much as you can for the 2016 charities. Make sure to follow the code of conduct rules while you are selling papers.

Contact your closest marshal or pop by Forrest Place to restock on papers and swap out FULL tins for a new one. Empty/partially full tins will not be accepted.

Gather in Forrest Place at the Information tent then follow the marshals and parade through the city streets. Making noise is encouraged.

Head to Northbridge Piazza to hear from the charities, and watch club and faculty society skits.
NOTE: UWA classes resume at 12pm

Head to the UWA Student Guild Tav and reward yourself for a hard day’s PROSHing. ID required, 18+ venue.

Don’t drive tired. Look after your friends. Make sure to return your tin to the UWA Student Guild by 4pm on Wednesday 13th April.

The below rules apply to all PROSH participants:
1. PROSH is a drug and alcohol free event. If you appear to be affected by drugs or alcohol you will be asked to leave.
2. Listen to and obey the marshals. They know what they’re doing and what you SHOULD be doing.
3. No street drinking. Anywhere. The fine for street drinking is $200.
4. Don’t sell papers on public transport at any time. Do not sell on Transperth concourses or in stations. Do not prevent people from leaving stations.
5. Look both ways before you cross the street.
6. Stay out of and away from all construction areas. You’re not Bob the Builder.
7. Don’t do anything that will get you or other people injured/killed.
8. Don’t die. Don’t ruin PROSH for everyone else.
9. Don’t litter. Put your rubbish and paper straps in the bin.
10. Don’t stand in the middle of the road or intersections. The fine is $50 for a traffic infringement.
11. Don’t block footpaths or walkways, you don’t have a licence to make life difficult for everyone
12. Don’t harass or swear at people. No means no. Seriously.
13. Don’t PROSH and drive. You will be tired after a long day of Prosh-ing. Organise alternative arrangements. Bring your SmartRider.
14. Failure to return tins will result in a $200 fine.
15. If you are doing something illegal, you will be handed over to the police. The organisers of PROSH take no responsibility for your actions.
16. Remember you are representing PROSH, the 2016 charities, the UWA Student Guild and The University of Western Australia at all times.
17. You are not permitted to sell papers at Elizabeth Quay, the Convention Centre, and the Esplanade Train Station (or surrounding areas) under any circumstances. If you are catching a bus to the Esplanade station, you must exit the area immediately.
