I love the arts and creativity. My early career was in teaching, writing, producing and directing for film, theatre, comedy and improv shows. Now I'm a professional creative content producer, mostly on digital platforms.
As of March 2015, there's a new player in town. The Foundry is a one-of-a-kind creative music hub designed by musicians for musicians. Upstairs at 228 Wickham Street, Fortitude Valley, punters and musos will find what's described as, "a mammoth two level complex that is part 300-person live room, part rock'n'roll bar, part collaborative space and home to 20 creative studios."
The Foundry is set to become a musical powerhouse with Brisbane's brightest booking agents, publicists, street press, blogs and 4ZZZ making their home in the creative crucible. There is a dedicated room where touring bands can crash for the night free of charge. It's all part of The Foundry's goal to support Brisbane's music scene first and worry about profits second.
