A bit about the project:
“The Chop Shop” the first true implementation of a pop up bar and gentrified space, celebrating art, music, skating culture and youth, in Canberra. We set up in an industrial space and successfully negotiated the myriad of permits and regulations to open. We ran charity bike shows, skating competitions, dance performances, live painting, “Patty Mills” short film preview, photographic exhibitions and diverse music shows from Tkay Maizda to the Vee Bees.
The Chop Shop had it all, funded by myself, my business partner and a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign.
