‘Mind the Gap’ is a project that comes from the Renew Newcastle and Renew Australia scheme. Mandy Schöne-Salter and Saskia Everingham will work with their local community and property owners to take otherwise empty shops, offices, commercial and public buildings and make them available to incubate short term use by artists, businesses, creative projects and community initiatives.
Say hello to Studio Pop-ups, where you can get up close and personal with designers and their creative process!
This week, as part of Sydney Design, visit the Powerhouse Museum and discover how a jeweller makes each piece, learn about contemporary technologies, processes, systems and equipment and find out first hand what motivates and inspires designers or hear about changes in their field.
Michaela Davies: ‘Game On’
No plans for this weekend? Come along to 'Underbelly Art Festival' . Among the artists, there are some of our previous Rocks Pop-Up participants, such as The Lot. The festival also features artists we’ve had in The Rocks as part of Village Bizarre and the Windmill project - participants such as Michaela Davies and Simmon Binns (Applespiel). Don’t miss out!
Underbelly Arts started in 2007 as a response to the numerous talented artists working out of bedrooms and warehouses. As a kind of social experiment, it sought to bring all those artists under the one roof and introduce them to one another, and to new audiences.
