Red Bull Flugtag this Sunday

Promises to be a great way to waste a Sunday. If you’re interested this competition is a direct rip off from the Bognor Regis birdman competition.

Bognor Regis is a small seaside town on the south coast of England, mostly inhabited by the elderly and infirmed. They need all the excitement they can get. In the famous words of George V when asked if he wished to take in the sea air in Bognor Regis, he replied “Bugger Bognor”. If you’ve even been there you’d understand why. So, bugger Bognor, lets see the bird men soar over Sydney harbour.

 Up, up and away..  To infinity and beyond.. etc etc

Pecha Kucha – creative things from creative people

Creative People talking about creative things. An extremely interesting evening with a switched on crowd. Definitely worth attending the next one in 2 months time. Also, if you get the chance check out the Commercial Travellers Association. There is carpet on the walls. Love it.

Pecha Kucha tomorrow night (27.03.09)

What is Pecha Kucha Night?

Pecha Kucha Night, devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham (Klein Dytham architecture), was conceived in 2003 as a place for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.

But as we all know, give a mike to a designer (especially an architect) and you’ll be trapped for hours. The key to Pecha Kucha Night is its patented system for avoiding this fate. Each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds each – giving 6 minutes 40 seconds of fame before the next presenter is up. This keeps presentations concise, the interest level up, and gives more people the chance to show.

Pecha Kucha (which is Japanese for the sound of conversation) has tapped into a demand for a forum in which creative work can be easily and informally shown, without having to rent a gallery or chat up a magazine editor. This is a† demand that seems to be global – as Pecha Kucha Night, without any pushing, has spread virally to over 100 cities across the world. Find a location and join the conversation.

Oh my, what a lovely tea party

Their blurb…

Somedays gallery = Arty Party!

Fusing our fashion space with an art gallery has an even greater benefit than merely expanding our appreciation for fine art- We get to have an opening party every second week! Set against vast panes of white walls in our airy loft-style space, somedays offers a chance for up and coming artists to promote and sell their original art work without the pomp and circumstance of many traditional galleries. Whether you’re a seasoned professional or fresh out of year 12 art class, Somedays gallery space offers a hip yet accessible space to exhibit your work and a great opportunity for the rest of us to get a sneak preview of next big thing in the art world!

Exhibition openings are just one excuse for a party- Those Swedish clothes disappear as if by magic and suddenly Somedays is transformed into event space extraordinaire. Brand launches, band showcases, after-parties direct from the Hopetoun all feature on the somedays event calendar.

For more information regarding the space contact the somedays crew.
