For the upcoming seminar get your blogging questions ready for ‘How to Make Money from Blogging’, a Q&A with popular blogger Christina Butcher of Hair Romance.
As always, there’s plenty of time before and after the seminar to connect with like minded bloggers and business owners in an inspiring and creative space in the heart of the heritage precinct The Rocks. Plus delicious wine and nibbles, and a fab Goodie Bag full of surprises!
What will come up next? Do not lose track of the last stage of Mike Hewson & Agatha Gothe-Snape’s 3-stage scaffold artwork on the Museum of Contemporary (MCA).
Australian Theatre for Young People will be starting their project from 5 August in The Rocks precinct. As part of their production, the company will be developing 5 theatre pieces using heritage, landscapes and present day stories and people of the Rocks.
This Piece will take place in the Susannah Place Museum, a rare row of surviving terrace houses. Built in 1844 and occupied until the 1990’s. Inspired by verbatim material and early accounts of life in the area, the production will bring this incredible building back to life.
Yesterday, The City of Sydney opened a new Creative Hub at Wiliam Street (101-111 William Street). This new centre comprises of a three storey warehouse, showrooms, a basement and six residential apartments over two buildings. The purpose of the space is to foster a new creative culture in the heart of Sydney.
Among the artists hosting the event last night, we were thrilled to see Romance was born, a former The Rocks Pop-up participant.
