Monthly Wrap Up – April 2018

The past month has gone faster than tickets to the Harry Styles concert this weekend. So before April disappears before our eyes we thought we should let everyone know what we’ve been up to. 

Submerse yourself

Every year at the World Science Festival the BHP Foundation use their ‘Street Science’ tent as a way to get kids excited about STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). This year’s theme was ‘Bodies of Water‘, and as the name suggests, it was about how water is important, not only to the planet but to us. Check out the video Romain and Laurence created and be moved by the power of water.

Gather ‘round

Back in February we got to work with artist Riki Salam (We are 27 Creative), Shannon Ruska and the Nunukul Yuggera Aboriginal Dance Company on an animation for the Australian Performing Arts Market (APAM). The video tells the story of how Mundagurra (the Rainbow Serpent) created the Brisbane River. For three nights the animation was projected onto the side of the iconic Brisbane Powerhouse, which was a pretty big feat (that wall is huge) and also just looked really cool on the exposed brick. The beautiful art and animation came together to tell a moving story about the very river running behind it, and gave us a project that we’re really proud of.

It’s Panda-monium!

As a way to promote Suncorp’s capability to buy and sell foreign currency and drive people in store, the Pitt Street concept store in Sydney held a competition that was just Panda-monium. We got Mads to go down and do what she does best – large-scale craft. In this case it was creating a huge pile of plush pandas where the punters had to guess how many there were to win a trip to Hong Kong (it was 351). And the competition really was pandemonium; weekly foot traffic in store jumped 500%. It was wild.
