We're a team of young social activists representing diverse orientations, cultures, and backgrounds, we’re disrupting a 4 billion dollar a year beer industry that is male dominated.
Fresh off a prestigious Pernod Ricard Scholarship, Sarah’s love for wine and the magical science behind it is ever bubbling. A political and environmental activist, Sarah graced Adelaide with her expertise 6 years ago, and has been kicking goals in her field ever since.
THE HEAD BREWER
One of about 3 Australian female head brewers under 30, Agi is a passionate master of her craft with fiery determination for creating alcoholic amazingness. After studying philosophy & sustainability (and sampling many beers along the way!) she decided that brewing was her true calling, and has now been brewing for over 3 years.
We disrupt for equality, we are a force behind acceptance, we are groundbreakers for a new social economy.
We are the sharers, the dreamers and the makers. We invite the world to join in our social enterprise. We will not leave anyone on the margins, on the streets or in the dark. We will not forget the hungry or the lost. We open our arms to those in the world who believe in 'good'.
We are a movement, a ground swell, and an energy that is felt and shared. We will give rise to the social agenda and create shared value and equity amongst all our members.
We are unique in our outlook, expressive in our beliefs. We are not a demographic, psychographic, economic segment, we are global nomads tapped in to individual causes that spark our imagination, ignite our beliefs and defy any logic or data.
We are unfiltered, straight up and energetically filled with authenticity. We are what we say on the TIN. We don’t take prisoners, but we hold our own and our friends and our community so near and dear that we will never back down from our cause.
raise your can and put your foot down.
10% OF DIRECT AND 4% OF CHANNEL SALES WILL BE GIVEN TO ORGANISATIONS SUPPORTING THE CAUSE ON THE CAN.
SPARKKE'S community see themselves as unique individuals, not easily labeled, with their own opinions and experiences, supported by a strong moral compass. They believe discrimination needs to stop and that everyone deserves a voice. They want to use their dollars for good and make a conscious choice to support brands that are authentically aligned with their values. We put our money where our beliefs and values are.
Consent is: “An active process of willingly and freely choosing to participate in sexual activity of any kind with someone else, and a shared responsibility for everyone engaging in, or who wants to engage in, any kind of sexual interaction with someone.
This means that sexual consent is not just making sure that someone doesn't say no - but ensuring that the person enthusiastically says YES. Let's get real about sexual consent, to ensure that all people involved in any sexual activity feel positive about the encounters they are having.
Cause Partner: Sparkke is currently working with a confederation of organisations to create an external project that fosters safe event spaces. Conversations underway with Project Consent and Lud Allen (sexual health expert).
Right there in verse two – we promise to share our plentiful lands with those who arrive on our shores seeking refuge. However many of us feel less than proud to sing our National Anthem whilst ‘taking on’ less than half a percent of refugees resettled globally in 2015 (11,776 people), then incarcerating them in detention camps.
While it may seem like a NEW problem, the issue of asylum seekers in Australia has been a fiercely debated political topic for generations. It began in the ‘30s when we did little to assist those fleeing Nazi Germany, and continues today when we have repeatedly been found to be in breach of the United Nations Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees. There are far too many myths that cloud the debate on asylum seekers.
January 26th is a date that for many Australians, evokes images of joyful gatherings with beachside barbeques, beer, music and red, blue and white paraphernalia. But for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people and many non-Aboriginal Australians, it is a date that marks the beginning of two centuries of dispossession, theft, colonization and violence.
Changing the date of Australia day is about how a nation that professes values of fairness and inclusiveness truly delivers on those values. It’s about truth and human decency.
Cause Partner: Sparkke is waiting for a formal submission from ChangeTheDate.com regarding formalisation of a cause partnership.
Feminism’ isn’t about beating men down. It’s about empowering us all to stand up against sexism and to support and uplift women to the equal status in society that they deserve. This includes economic, political and social status.
The genitals you were born with should not dictate how you are treated. Let’s refocus the sexual lens that forbids women going topless at the beach (men won this right in the ‘20’s).
We can all work together to get rid of the double standards that exist and moderate a culture that pressures women feel ashamed of their bodies.
If you love someone in Australia, you can marry them. Unless you’re an LGBTIQ+ person marrying another LBGTIQ+ person. Then you can’t.
Welcome to the seemingly never-ending marriage equality debate, which has ebbed and flowed in this country for well over a decade.
The campaign for Marriage Equality in Australia has essentially been about two things: equality before the law for all Australians; and allowing two people who love each other, regardless of their sexual or gender orientation, to formalise their love in a union recognised by the law. The rights of same-sex attracted couples have been denied for too long. It’s long overdue that we enforce them, and you have to get involved and and Say I Do to make that happen.
Mother Earth’s had enough and moving planets isn’t really an option. The mining and burning of fossil fuels is literally cooking our planet. Not only does this make things hotter, fuelling heatwaves, reef bleaching and bush-fires, it messes with weather systems and makes storms, cyclones and floods more frequent and intense.
Good news is that humans caused climate change - so together we can fix it. We have everything we need to reduce pollution fast, we just need the political will to get there. We can do away with wasteful fuels of the past, and upgrade to clean renewable energy. Get informed, get vocal, go green.
