Masters + Creators Showcase
September 22, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
For one night only Parry St creatives open up their studio doors in celebration of creativity and innovation
Friday 22nd September, leading creatives of Newcastle will open their studio doors for the free Masters + Creators event. From 6-9pm the public will be able to peruse the INNX warehouse, a co-working warehouse in Parry St, Newcastle West and home to many of Newcastle’s top creatives and agencies. The event is not simply a showcase but an intentional celebration of community and innovation, with a keynote address being given by Jack Delosa, one of Australia’s most sought after motivational entrepreneurs.
The event will showcase many of the INNX locals including designers, marketing and branding agencies, film makers, architects, photographers and an array of the region’s top freelancers. As INNX director Shane Burrell states, “There is such a vibrant creative culture evolving in Newcastle, specifically Newcastle West. What’s remarkable, is that we are seeing the bigger cities take notice and begin to bring work here. For example, I can be in Melbourne and see a TV commercial or a print ad and be blown away thinking, ‘That was produced out of INNX.’ It’s an inspiring moment for the creative community in Newcastle and we want to share it and celebrate it.”
Parry St favourite ‘The Edwards’ will be hosting the official after party, which will be a top spot to view the street projections that will be featured as apart of the event. In association with Newcastle Now, the exterior walls of INNX will be lit up with large scale projections exhibiting work from the major agencies. The event will also celebrate the work of fellow Parry St neighbours, The Hunter Design School which will be opening their gallery to showcase the work of their students.
The revival of Newcastle West and in particular Parry St has been a community effort and the momentum has been steadily building from within the creative community. The co-working model is one that fosters a strong sense of community whilst allowing independence. In the case of INNX it has allowed for growth and collaborations between companies and individuals which most likely would not have eventuated had it not been for the co-working community. The Masters + Creators event will endeavour to inspire us all to engage in community, be it creative or not, champion innovation and the joy of creating work to be proud of.
The event kicks off at 6pm and is warmly open to everyone but strongly recommended to any individuals in the creative industries or those looking to move in that direction.
