We were excited to support the launch of Kaleido Issue #3 at COMMUNE Makers Space. Following on from the success of the first 2 issues, the launch event focused on creativity for social change, and brought an amazing crowd of socially engaged creatives ready to use their skills for the better.
Featuring a range of incredible filmmakers, dancers, designers, artists and more, the printed issue and launch event focused on the makers using their creative skills to tackle social issues like gender equality, human rights, environmental sustainability, inclusiveness for disability, indigenous opportunity and more.
The night featured some incredibly talented and inspiring creatives, including the NSW Young Australian of the Year and award winning director of Bus Stop Films Genevieve Clay-Smith, Director of socially conscious design studio Agency, Murray Bunton, Creative Producer Tida Tippapart, and co-founder of Women in the Arts Isabelle Hore-Thurbon.
On top of these industry speakers, the crowd were entertained by amazing local musicians Hannah Robinson and Snail, along with socially conscious performances by Australian Poetry Slam Champion Philip Wilcox, dancer and choreographer Feras Shaheen and an ethical food carving and jewellry workshop by Mundane Matters.
Supported by our vegan friends My Little Panda Kitchen, and Young Henrys, the evening really highlighted the passion in creative communities to keep improving and to use their skills for social good.
