In a dusty bar by the Mississippi, the sounds of a blues rhythm on a harmonica rattle through ramshackle windows. Dice are thrown, moonshine swigged and worker’s shake off a long week’s toil with dancing, sequins and beaming smiles. It’s Thursday night and the Juke Joint is in full swing!
The Operatives, Slurp Music & Whomp! present… #4
The mighty Condensed Milk collective with an all Live lineup.
In a climate where commercial media has set a prescribed and formulaic approach to the dissemination of art, Condensed Milk is an independent collective of like minded graphic designers, beat makers, DJs and crate diggers. Condensed Milk is a digital hub for music as well as art and culture, sourced from varying media sources from all corners of the globe. The collective features artists from Melbourne, Auckland, and Paris, and will continue to cultivate, promote and represent talent from as many diverse backgrounds as possible.
Introducing The Street Store – The world’s first pop-up clothing store for the homeless and those in need, found entirely on the street and curated by you! What started in Cape Town in early January 2014 has now gone international with over 120 stores popping up in different countries across the world (www.thestreetstore.org).
Now, The Street Store will be making it’s first Australian appearance thanks to the people at Homeless of Melbourne, GiDi Creative and Free Is Better!
We’re inviting you to get involved, because you have something many don’t – clothes you choose not to wear. Help give those in need the opportunity to have a dignified shopping experience, which for some, might even be their first time at choosing items they actually want. In the spirit of Christmas, show you care for those with daily struggles and make an effort to sit, chat, listen and share. We’re setting out to bridge the gap between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’ and we’re looking for incredible people like you to join us.
