About

What is LIVE N LEARN?

Live n' Learn is a series of interactive arts learning experiences incorporating local venues including cafes, restaurants and retail businesses

Beyond a workshop, Live n Learn will be complete, immersive creative experiences - part 'how to', part performance and part social connection.

WORKSHOPS |DIY |MUSIC |ART

Experiences will be delivered with specific connection to the hosting venue or business. A local dress shop might see a wine and cheese night where participants learn to sew, create or up-cycle old clothes. Local bars may play host to performances and song writing workshops. Book stores can be inspired by graphic novels to showcase artwork and drawing workshops.
