What’s on Melbourne

Holy moly, there’s a lot going on this weekend in Melbourne! Here’s a snapshot of what I’ll be running along to:

PauseFest and Supergraph are on for this weekend only. The former has been referred to by Campaign Brief as “the Australian version of SXSW” and the latter is a market of affordable art prints from emerging and established artists. At PauseFest there will be events from a hackathon for TAC (using technology creatively to help save lives on our roads) to a program of talks covering cultural topics like how we can make digital journalism better to economic ones; currency in the digital world. I am particularly looking forward to sessions with This American Life producers considering how much I (and the podcasting world) enjoy their shows. However I will be stealing away to Supergraph to make sure I get my allocated time with the Face-o-mat!!

Lady Petrova Hammond Melbourne

Have you listened to Episode 53 of the Melbourne in Fashion podcast? It’s one of my favourites to date as it features the wonderfully creative #girlboss Petrova Hammond of Lady Petrova. This weekend, I’ll be taking part in a Flower Crown making class at Petrova’s The School of Fabulousness! I’d love to bring along my floral creation to the Face-o-mat!

The runway component of the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival (VAMFF) will run from March 14-22 while its Cultural Program goes live this Sunday through until March 15. Featuring films, community projects, shows, talks and exhibitions, the Cultural Program creates the opportunity to get into the fabric of our fashion culture.
