The Creative Industry: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly
We are collaborating with photographer and creative Jana Langhorst for a night at her studio Semi Vacant in Footscray. Email us for details and RSVP.
Our topic for the night is simply 'The Creative Industry': the good, the bad and the ugly. What are we doing to change the shit that doesn't work? How are we making it better for the ones who're just stepping into it? In these times of *uncertainty*, what does the future hold for creative roles? Keen to chat it out over some great wine and munchies.

Let's talk Side Hustle
Do you have one? Do you enjoy it more than your full-time job? What keeps you motivated? How do you make time for it? What does it take to 'make it work'? What's keeping you from making it your full-time job?

Get Out of Your Head
We hear, read, and watch a fuck-load of "Women can do ANYTHING, EVERYTHING, THE IMPOSSIBLE yada yada yada" and that's amazing yeah, but we also fuck up every-now-and-then (every day if you're like us) and that's also OK. If that voice inside your head is getting a bit too loud, come have a few wines and some great food and get that pressure off your goddamn beautiful shoulders while we talk about why being vulnerable and fucking up is NECESSARY, and why we need to learn to embrace failure.
