Kaleido Issue 04 Launch Event

What does balance mean to you? How can we take better care of ourselves and others, while powering on with our creative passions? Join us as we delve into the 4th issue of Kaleido through a live industry panel, art exhibition, creative workshops, groove therapy, music food and drinks.

We’ll explore the ideas behind the publication with an industry Q&A with our amazing panel, featuring Mary Hoang, founder and head psychologist from The Indigo Project, Robyn Wilson, CEO of Australian arts and health organisation Flutter Lyon and Tin Pang, filmmaker and director behind the recent award winning short film MOTHER, CHILD.

You’ll get the chance to have your face painted by the amazing artist Jeff McCann, see a Life Pressing demonstration by Flutter Lyon, a mindful tasting session with The Indigo Project, a pop-art portrait for Sydney's Hear Our Voice campaign, a portrait drawing session with Nena Salobir, and you can even grab yourself a limited spot in our Groove Therapy demonstration to get your blood pumping for the dance floor.

The brews will be flowing on the night courtesy of our friends at Young Henrys, and there’ll be food options available for purchase on the night. Every ticket holder will get a free copy of Kaleido Issue 04 on the night to celebrate it’s release, along with multiple workshops and activities.

Kaleido events are the perfect chance to expand your creative networks in a fun and relaxed environment, while learning tips from professionals and being inspired by the amazing creative talent in Sydney.
