Come Hang With Pedestrian

Just in case you haven’t heard us mention it yet, the Pedestrian team has relocated to Westfield Sydney for all of this week (Monday 20 June – Friday 24 June) where we will be running our entire website using the LG Optimus Black smart phone. Since we’ll be in a visible public space with a chance for us to meet some of you guys, we’ve planned a bunch of free events and activities in order to lure you down to Westfield for a visit.

Tomorrow (Tuesday 21 June) we’ll be doing live Q&A sessions with some of the talented creatives from around Australia, encompassing Fashion (Gideon Shoes, Secret Squirrel), Art (Ben Frost), Events (Jess Scully, Creative Sydney), and Advertising (Stephen Goodhew). These kick off at 11am.

At 5pm we’re holding Creative Talks on the subject “How To Make It In A Creative Industry” featuring some very successful and inspiring individuals including: fashion designer Josh Goot, EMI’s A&R Manager Mark Holland, independent gallery director Kelly Robson, and strategy director of influential media agency Mindshare, Adam Ross.

Creative Talks Details:
Tuesday 21 June – 5:00pm
Level 2, Westfield Sydney (outside GAP).
Free – just RSVP here

On Tuesday we’re also holding individual CV Hacker sessions where you can get one-on-one feedback for your portfolio or resume with one of Pedestrian’s creative careers experts. Spots are limited so to book in a session RSVP here.

For Wednesday we’ve got two live photo shoots planned (one for We Are Handsome, one for Gary Pepper Vintage) featuring two models that you are going to cast for us.

Later that day we’re testing the facebook stalking prowess of some single girls and guys with a round of Speed Stalking. Yes. It is as creepy as it sounds.

We’ve got more happening all throughout the week, so if you’re in Sydney come hang with us. Don’t be a stranger now.
