SUGAR MOUNTAIN FESTIVAL at the forum theatre
yes, there are about a billion festivals these days, but sugar mountain is something of a novelty, as it combines awesome bands and awesome art under the same roof. visual artist line-up is total greatness and features some of my favs – steven harrington, stefan marx and thomas campbell (who will be there in the flesh and doing live painting!!). i think this is going to be a pretty great event.
sugar mountain festival – saturday 30th may at the forum theatre. more details and tickets available on the sugar mountain website
CARBON FESTIVAL OF DESIGN AND CULTURE at fed square
carbon is a 3-day event featuring exhibitions, parties and forums. on sunday i am speaking at a forum titled “craftsmanship and imagination” along side graffiti legend futura as well as brett chan and anthony lister. considering this is a forum and public speaking is not my forte, i may not actually be saying anything (well i do have to do a 10 minute presentation. gulp), but listening to futura alone will be tres interesting.
carbon, april 29th – may 1st, federation square. more details on all events, speakers and tickets available on the carbon website.
i have one ticket to the ‘craftsmanship and imagination’ forum on sunday and one ticket to sugar mountain festival on saturday to giveaway! plus, as i have just realised my blog recently turned 2 years old (!) and i am just past the 150th post mark, so with each ticket i am going to throw one of my limited editions giclee prints too (rainbow thought – below). and to make it fair for those of you not in melbourne – i will be giving away ANOTHER print for those of you not in my home town (twins print 1 – below). it’s pure giveaway MADNESS here!
to enter just leave a comment before 2pm (melbourne time) tomorrow, and winners will be randomly selected and announced tomorrow evening. thanks for reading!
