Seven cities and three countries, St Jerome’s Laneway Festival coming to a city near you and it’s bringing another killer lineup of artists along for the ride.

It’s been a decade since Danny Rogers and Jerome Borazio threw a party and called it a festival down by the ‘colourful’ alley in the backstreets of the Melbourne CBD. In that time, Laneway has hosted some of the world’s best artists before they went on to become major stars.

The team at Posse is super excited about this lineup and we decided to choose our top ten hits from todays release.

Dates and venues:
Saturday 24 January – Singapore – The Meadow
Monday 26 January – Auckland – Silo Park
Saturday 31 January – Brisbane – Brisbane Showgrounds
Sunday 1 February – Sydney – Sydney College of the Arts

Reconsider Your Next Purchase

August 21, 2014 at 4:23 pm

ReverseGarbage has a new shopfront in the heart of Redfern, ReConsidered. The shop space aims to inspire customers to see value and function in materials which have been thrown to the wayside. A great place to find affordable interior décor and furnishings, sustainable art works and a range of other curiosities.


Launched earlier this year, the new outlet sits along Redfern’s Regent Street. Tangled between various op-shops ReConsidered is confident that its processes are unique. All products on display have been up-cycled by Reverse Garbage’s ReStore and ReCreate Team. This creative bunch of  artists, educators and designers are committed to the organisation’s mission ‘to practice reuse and work exclusively with only reuse materials’. From chair’s refurbished with hessian coffee bags, to antique crockery, you’ll find something new every time you visit.

Once a month there’s exhibitions of artworks and art installations made by local designers to promote their work and the use of recycled materials to create art.

Where: 167 Regent Street, Redfern

When:  Tuesday – Saturday (10am to 5pm)


If you’re not looking for the finished product, there’s plenty of inspiration at the ReverseGarbage Warehouse. Located in Marrackville, donations of ‘garbage’ are made available to the general public for creative use, or reuse.

There’s plenty to choose from as Reverse Garbage continues to collect tonnes of valuable materials including off-cuts, over-runs, art & craft materials, stage props, knickknacks, furniture and other items. 40 years of establishment has led to contributions from hundreds of supporting commercial and industrial businesses, as well as the generosity of the local community.

Where: 8/142 Addison Road Marrickville

When: Monday – Saturday ( 9am to 5pm)  Sundays (10am to 4pm)

tabaimo art exhibition at MCA


Japanese visual artist, Tabaimo, exposes the dark truth lurking beneath daily existence in contemporary Japanese society through MEKURUMEKU. Debuting her most significant solo show to date at the MCA, MEKURUEMEKU provides us with a glimpse of the isolation, contagion, uncertainty, anxiety and confinement that acts as a blanket of smog suffocating Japanese society today.

Share stories in the dark at the Sydney Film Festival Hub

June 11, 2014 at 12:33 pm

 The Sydney Film Festival is on this week and will be running until 15th of June, with over 160 films to choose from and screening all over the city. 160 films is no joke, and flicking through a program guide if you’re not a film buff up to date with every entrant to pass through the film festival circuit before it gets to us here in Australia, makes heading into the festival a bit daunting, but forget about the films when you can head downstairs at Town Hall which is being transformed once again for the 3rd year of the Sydney Film Festival Hub.
