‘The Chop Shop’ – Get Onboard!

by

‘The Chop Shop’ will be taking over an abandoned warehouse in the heart of Braddon (Canberra, Australia) for 4 months, with a total of 26 weekends of events, running up to the New Year. Billed as a place to support the arts, music, fashion, and the fringe culture; but without the wank. An independent community based house of fun. In amongst making the venue entirely out of recycled materials, Sancho (of Sancho’s Dirty Laundry fame) took some time to chat with our Canberra correspondent Damo to give us the low down…

DW: What is ‘The Chop Shop’?

Sancho: Oh oh, you know that episode of ‘The Simpsons’ where Bart emancipates himself and moves into a loft downtown and finds that Tony Hawk lives within the building in a max-chillax pad – complete with a skate ramp and throwing a party with Blink 182? Cross that with Hansel’s pad from Zoolander, and that’s the Chop Shop! Haha.

On a more serious note, the Chop Shop is here to enliven Canberra’s street culture. We’re not re-inventing the wheel, just filling a much-needed gap in Canberra. Essentially, we just want to provide a platform where we can showcase Canberra’s creative talent that gives our city character. Friday’s are dedicated Arts nights and Saturday’s are gig nights. A point of differentiation with this initiative is, unlike a gallery, we won’t be charging rent or taking commissions, 100% straight up back to the artists.

We’ll also be focusing heavily on arts from the fringe such as street, graff, tattoo, bike/custom car culture as well as running street food festivals, art markets, independent movie nights to name a few.

Shida is considered an asset to Australian contemporary art, who is constantly challenging himself against the sources of his inspiration.
