Launching late 2011, Cake Wines’ position as a new generation wine brand was cemented in 2012, playing an active role in culture by donating 25 cents to FBI and 4ZZ Radio, hosting independent film nights, launching the Archi-bottle Prize and hosting a number of pop-up bars in dis-used spaces around the city. With 7 varietals on the table, Cake Wines’ light‐to medium bodied South Australian Wines are striking a chord with an audience who have for so long been saturated by a same-same approach by the big guys.

“Wherein the noble youth did dress themselves” - Henry IV Part 2

Ludlites Love Sydney is an exhibition that celebrates our diverse city through low-fidelity photography. The light-leaking and vignetting qualities of film-based, plastic camera photography is embraced to present the city intimately from a range of perspectives.
United by a love for Lomographic cameras, the Ludlites Lo-fi Photography Collective believes that beauty lies in chance and imperfection, not a perfect digital world.
Free weekly artist talks will also be held in the pop-up space to introduce the cameras used, and express the joys of film and the Ludlites’ insights into Sydney.
The Ludlites Love Sydney exhibition is open from Monday 21st January at 29 Playfair Lane, The Rocks. Artist talks are held every Saturday from 12pm – 1pm.
Painter Stan Yarramunua joins the Rocks Pop-Up project this January with his Aboriginal art working and painting pop-up space. Passionate about promoting and educating others about his culture, the space will feature Indigenous art, didgeridoo playing and storytelling. Yarramunua’s exhibited artwork will be for sale, as well as those produced by local, emerging Indigenous Australians.
The Art Yarramunua pop-up space will be located at 79 George Street from Friday 11th January.
Public workshops will run every Saturday between 2pm and 4pm, when our artist in residence teaches didgeridoo playing and painting.
High Definition Busking is not your regular street performance. The combination of 3D mapping technologies, custom interactive software, visuals, and the sounds of superb musicians results in an experience that is ‘strange but beautiful’. 3D video mapping enables the creation of an ‘augmented reality’ or, in other words, the illusion that the physical environment is reacting to the music.
From Monday January 7 HD Busking will develop their new outdoor performance work at Shop 25 Rocks Square. Following the development stage, live HD Busking performances will be held at Kendall Lane.
