‘Kaleido’ – a Sydney-based print publication and website – will offer a new outlet for creatives to connect, collaborate and share their work. Sydney’s newest crowdfunded newspaper will be hosting its official launch party on Saturday, 6 December at COMMUNE Studios in Erskineville to help kick start its first issue.
Graphic designer Jennifer Noorbergen initiated the project to help young creatives transition into the industry by featuring people, projects and places that facilitate creativity and collaboration. The newspaper will also be used to showcase submissions and promote creative events and networking opportunities.
“Kaleido was conceived as a way to help young creatives transition into professional life,” said Jennifer, who was recently awarded the Student of the Year at her Graduation Exhibition.
“Starting out, we all face the same difficulty of needing experience to get a job, and needing a job to get experience. Kaleido can be that first foot in the door. It can also be a place to go back to once your career is established – to share your love of creative collaboration, and connect with your current and up-and-coming colleagues.”
Kaleido’s launch party will feature talented industry speakers; including typography legend Gemma O’Brien, children’s television writer Charlotte Hamlyn and editor of award winning ‘Something You Said’, Bobby Townsend, as well as live music by Twin Caverns and an art gallery curated by Sydney artist Alice Amsel.
Newtown’s very own brewery, Young Henry’s, will be providing their delicious beer and cider for Kaleido ticket holders to say cheers to a more connected and creative Sydney.
The Kaleido launch party is an exciting opportunity to experience the publication first hand and support a bold initiative in creative collaboration and networking.
