Hey there Newy! Ever wanted to design your own app? Pumphouse School of Design are calling for expressions of interest for their upcoming short course. ‘Beyond the Book’ is still on at Acrux Gallery showcasing an amazing collection of handcrafted illustrated books by some ridiculously talented local artists. The ‘Off the Wall’ exhibition at Timeless Textiles Gallery explores a mother and son’s long-distance relationship through textile art inspired by grafitti. And Gallery 139 and Acrux are still calling for artist submissions for their upcoming collaborative exhibition ‘Little’. And lastly we need to give a MASSIVE shout out to the boys from Nodding Dog who were our guest presenters for April’s #TDKtuesdays, thanks for walking us step-by-step through the ‘When Good Nights Turn Feral’ campaign. What’s on for May’s #TDKtuesdays? Make sure you keep an eye on the Facebook page for the deets!

The Novocastrian Files

Since my first visit to Newcastle in 1998 I have been a big fan of ‘Australia’s most underrated city’ (Lonely Planet), so much so our family moved here from Sydney in 2010.

Several months later, I started The Novocastrian Files. Firstly as a way of finding out more about some of the interesting and talented locals I was discovering and secondly as a means of identifying where the good coffee / lunch / dinner spots are via their recommendations.
