Art is The Cure (AITC)

Had a meeting this morning with Rich Simmons and Graham over at the Art is The Cure HQ in Norwood Junction. There studio is awesome, floor to ceiling murals and amazing street art propped up all over the place, as well as covering every possible surface.

Am pleased to be able to announce that 4WD Foundation will be working in partnership with AITC and Ignite on a few youth projects based at AITC HQ this summer. For more info on Art is The Cure watch this short (pretty old school!) video featuring founder Rich Simmons:

Tomorrow Rich will be creating a street piece outside the Opera Gallery prior to featuring alongside the likes of Banksy and D*Face at The Street Art Show, which he has kindly invited me and Goldie to! My first ever art gallery private party invite! Apparently Hugh Grant is on the guest list and there is free champagne…

An Intimate Affair …

So in an attempt to use up The Mad House‘s NYE GOLDEN STARS PARTY endless alcohol and food supplies, yesterday I invited a few friends round that turned into a few dozen to come and help a sister out.

Friends, free-flowing food and drink, music, convo, fire and rather heated games resulted in a fantastic evening, night and early morning with the last guests arriving at 3am and the last guest leaving at 8am!

So much talent and positivity passed through these four walls I’m surprised the roof didn’t pop right off.

There were writers, journalists, artists, rappers, singers, producers, actors, comedians, models, PR gurus, stylists, entrepreneurs, psychologists, magicians, DJs…

Got me thinking about how much we could achieve united, and in what capacity. *pause*

Beautiful times.

Here’s to the next Intimate Affair, (date TBC). Potentially with a theme. And a tangible creative outcome. E X C I T E M E N T…

First I have to scrub the floors (again).

Thank you all so much for coming and for being fabulous.
