Podcast Ep10 - Logan's Talented Creatives

We are so excited! 2017 is going to be a MASSIVE year for arts culture in Logan. We already have a few exciting projects and exhibition opportunities ready to reveal shortly along with our new site and downloadable app!

As promised – this is the live recording of the event we held in December where we heard from Logan Artists, Naomi Crawford, Peta Thompson, award-winning writer Karen Tyrrell, and Poet, Matt (Trucky) Langdon.

Our new website is almost ready to launch, we are just putting the final touches on it – so stay tuned for this too! In the meantime, have a listen, and get involved in the local culture around you!

 

 

A few events this February to get more culture up to your eyeballs.

Feb 3 – Dirty Rotten Scoundrels 

Beenleigh’s Pheonix Ensemble’s opening night – Based on the popular 1988 film, DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS centres on two con men living on the French Riviera. The suave and sophisticated Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Small-time crook, Freddy Benson, more humbly swindles women with fabricated stories about his grandmother’s failing health. After unsuccessfully attempting to work together, they conspire to compete in a con – and the loser must leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues, that will keep audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end!

 

Feb 4 – Waitangi Day @ NightQuarter 

NightQuarter is proud to be celebrating everything that is Aotearoa (NZ) on the 4th February in celebration of Waitangi Day!
What better way to celebrate the significance of the signing of New Zealand’s founding treaty than with a massive line-up of music, food and cultural performances inspired by the land of the long white cloud.

You’re invited to sit back in The Paddock with your whānau, enjoy the sounds of none other than HOUSE OF SHEM, the Hanlon Brothers and The Hula Hut. The melting pot of global sounds with strong New Zealand and Pacific Island influences will be a great experience for Kiwis and Aussies alike!
