buttons o fun

By kaydo at 11:58 pm on Wednesday, April 25, 2007

I’ve seen posters around town advertising this, but I didn’t trust it was true until I saw it on the interweb. Sounds like the makings of a cool event, and thanks to Ximon’s brilliant research, we have the details:

    Push Your Buttons
    24 April – 5 May
    Ten Canberra artists address the theme Politics
    and Pop through the miniature but multiple
    format of the buttonbadge.
    On Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th a free workshop
    will offer members of the public the chance to
    design and produce their very own badges. A
    selection of these will be displayed during the
    second week of the exhibition. This project is
    suppor ted by the ACT Government through
    artsACT funding.

    Opening 6pm Tuesday 24 April

Shamelessly lifted from the ANU School of Art website which has more info.

Post Pointing-out Pubtastic Pants Participation

By threeze at 10:21 pm on Wednesday, April 18, 2007

Ever been confused as to why a pub has the name it has? Like, Civic Pub? There is nothing terribly civc minded about the place, but it does have a great atmosphere and beer and pool tables.

Turns out the people that own that place opened another obtusely named place, the Uni Pub.

And Thursday night, PANTS is going there. There is likely to be purchases made (probably involving beer or a chicken parmie) and hopefully I can get on a pool table and show to the world why I should never be allowed on a real life pool table out in public. Oh, and I can’t wait to see if they have a jukebox and if it has as good of a selection as I remember the Civic Pub having when I was at uni.

So, that’s Thursday Night at the Uni Pub (on University Avenue).
