At the Habitus headquarters in Sydney’s Surry Hills we’re smack bang in the middle of a creative hub, surrounded by designers, artists, musicians and food creatives.
It is truly a place to live in design – and it’s also the first place to hear about those underground activities before they hit the mainstream. That’s how we found out about the Small Stories, Big Picture event to be held as part of the upcoming Sydney Design 2010.
The idea is to get people out and about in Surry Hills, on their bikes, taking snaps and gathering stories along the way.
Each Saturday throughout the Sydney Design 2010 festival (31 July – 15 August), 25 people will be invited to join a cycling tour of the Sydney suburb, visiting design and fashion destinations along the way and discovering their stories.
Provided with a bike, a LOMO camera (read more about that over here) and a ‘passport’, riders will go from Cloth and Metalab (more on that here), visiting I Ran the Wrong Way (more about that here) and collecting stamps from bespoke retailers in between, which can be used for discounts later on.
The whole thing will wrap up at the end of Sydney Design 2010 with an exhibition and party at the Beresford in Surry Hills – where there’ll be a photo swap and raffle of the LOMO cameras.
