Art Party (2015)

Art + Party was an end of year party, held at La De Da on Friday 6th November 2015. The night consisted of collaborative live art from artists Abyss .607, Josh Roy Barlow and Juliette Dudley. Electronic duo Mondecreen performed live, along with DJ sets from Bottle Brush, Aeon Knight and First Gulf War.

I organised this party as an end of year celebration for the University of Canberra Graphic Design Club. I was responsible for overall event management and promotion, including coordinating artists and musicians, poster design and online promotion. I also decorated the venue to give an upbeat party atmosphere, which included streamers, helium balloons, tissue paper flowers hanging from the ceiling and a smoke machine.

Live artwork from Abyss .607 proved to be a highlight for many. The local legend returned from Melbourne, specifically for this event. He also painted a new mural inside La De Da earlier on the day of the party.

The event was kindly supported by Almost Anything, Good Design Club, UC Life, La De Da, Cubed Media and with art materials provided by Sancho’s Dirty Laundry.

The event video was produced by James Stavridis of Cubed Media.
