AUSTRALIA’S INTIMATE NEW CREATIVITY FESTIVAL BY GOLDBERG ABERLINE STUDIO
Date: May 2021
Location: Walsh Bay
Collaborators: Pier One Sydney
In May 2020, Goldberg Aberline Studio partnered with Pier One for Australia’s most intimate creativity festival, The Creative Hub. An amazing line-up of Sydney’s most iconic creatives and innovators help Sydneysiders “rediscover Sydney” by offering a series of hands-on creative experiences at the Pier.
The Creative Hub was held at Bridge Marquee, which was transformed into The Art Bar, a fabulous, creative, experiment of temporary architecture by international artists Goldberg Aberline Studio. Workshops and panel conversations by some of Sydney’s brightest icons of creativity we held overlooking stunning views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The event also featured a signature GAS inflatable installation, fun furniture and a pop-up bar flowing with cocktails and champagne.
Discussion panels were MC’d by esteemed artist and innovator, Maurice Goldberg and an incredible list of speakers including, Australian artist and designer Frida Las Vegas, Creative Director World Pride Sydney 2023 Daniel Clarke, Ex Mardi Gras CEO Terese Casu, Fringe Festival CEO Kerri Glasscock , Patrick McIntryre, Sydney Theatre Company Executive Director, and many more!
The Creative Hub masterclasses kicked off on May 7th with 'Happiness Art' experts Maurice Goldberg and Matthew Aberline of GAS in a 90-minute, unique abstract drawing workshop. Participants learnt five key techniques for releasing their creative spirit, in a session designed for all experience levels so participants can learn how creativity can be used beyond the easel and in everyday life.
Indigenous artist and educator Graham Toomey took over the first Creativity Class, inspiring guests to have fun experimenting with paint and learning about contemporary aboriginal art concepts.
Goldberg Aberline Studio’s Creative Hub was supported by the City of Sydney as part of the “Rediscover Sydney” campaign.
