Collaboration and creation collide for The Cove Workspace’s Curated event series

When it comes to the design and creative industries, one of the most beneficial things you can do is take the time to learn from your peers. It’s a bloody tough slog out there in the industry, so taking on the wisdom and advice from those who are killing it in their field is pretty much a no-brainer. Rather than go for a dry boardroom-style approach, The Cove Workspace decided to hold a series of events to put the fun back into learning and networking. Running from December 11–22, Curated will bring together some of the brightest minds in the business for your information and pleasure. more

We’re all familiar with the fantasy of renting out a ridiculously baller hotel room and just going to town on the facilities in a binge of pure hedonism, but rarely is it possible to find a venue that would actually match up to these sky-high expectations.

The Brisbane CBD is set to welcome a very fancy newcomer in early 2018 – W Brisbane is arriving to make your wildest dreams a reality. more

Enjoy some clay play at Newstead’s Mas & Miek Ceramic House
