Imagine for a second, if you will, a world dominated by celebrity glossies and Rupert Murdoch newspapers. We don’t blame you if you’re running fast out of your horrific little imagination right about now; we would be, too, so we just conveniently skipped the aforementioned exercise. Sadly though, that scary scene right there could be the reality if independent publishing one day ceases to exist, which, along with the catastrophic effects of climate change, would possibly make life not worth living. And so in the interest of maintaining our will to wake up in the morning, we will definitely be supporting online Sydney mag Kluster at their fundraiser tomorrow night, and you should too if you’re anything like us (or more awesome than us. Either one.).
State of the Art will feature live, interactive art by emerging Sydney artists, music provided by DJs and The Border Thieves, silent auctions, giveaways, and, of course, beer. It’s all about supporting the city’s emerging arts community and the platforms that so generously present it. If you’re still on the fence, read our feature with Kluster’s editor, Kat Hartmann, from way back when to get appropriately inspired.
The event is on from 7.30pm at Helen Rose-Schausberger Laboratorium, Level 1, 17 Waterloo Street in Surry Hills. Be sure to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Since it’s a fundrasier, it is recommended that you bring funds. Suggested donation is $15, and while that covers the free bevvies, you can bring your own too if you’re a picky alcy.
