Australia’s premier contemporary style and culture event, CARBON festival, kicks off its third year of forums this April with a lineup of inspiring creative entrepreneurs and artists hand-picked from all over the world.
Speakers flying in from around the globe to share their stories of struggle and success include founder of the acclaimed streetwear brand, Stussy; the one and only Shawn Stussy, who, apparently, has spent the last 12 or so years surfing in Hawaii, as well as the recently-turned septuagenarian senator of street art reportage, Martha Cooper.
Joining the melee will be the best daredevil duo since Batman and Robin, Dabs & Myla, and www.booooooom.com creator, Jeff Hamada, as well as Aussie artist and one-man social glue factory, Mark Drew, graffiti powerhouse, Barry Mcgee, and a whole host of other amazing minds.
Our old favourites New Era’s Australian brothers and sisters will be getting down and Adidas are slinging some weight behind the organizers at Acclaim Magazine too, so it looks like a monster weekend in Melbourne is to be had.
We’ll be down there bringing you daily round ups in between our daily beer intake and naps.
