Carbon – Friday

Tonight marks the start of Carbon Festival in Melbourne. Kicking things into play for the weekend comes a special 30th Anniversary screening of seminal hip hop documentary, Style Wars – a movie that switched a world full of rebellious teenagers on to the expressive artform of graffiti.

Original documenters of the scene, Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant will be in attendance (if they’ve recovered from jetlag in time) to host a Q&A session on the movie. The screening, which itself is presented by Aussie paint brand, Ironlak, is exclusive to Carbon ticket holders.

The rest of the weekend encompasses a series of talks from the top independent creative minds from around the globe. Forums focus on four main areas of discussion:

Building a Brand, Contemporary Art & Design, New Media, Film & Photography

Other highlights include the Adidas’ Colliderscope on the Saturday – a chance for creatives to collide under the influence of music from Swick (Mad Decent) and visuals from Eness – and New Era are hosting a Sneaker Freaker swap meet on the Sunday.

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.
