The Carlton Club together with Square Pleasure present the first Good Days Bad Days live event! Good Days Bad Days is a collective of art makers from all creative streams coming together to foster an environment where artists new or established can ask for help or to offer help, to get inspired, share knowledge and make connections.
Stumbling on a roadblock as a creative is tricky. Asking questions is trickier. Knowing who to ask is sometimes the biggest hurdle! So we’ve created our first monthly live event in collaboration with The Carlton Club. Good Days Bad Days live event will feature a Q&A session by current industry professionals, an open mic style workshop to present your music demo, spoken word, fashion, project to a room of peers who can then offer advice, critique, support, or just be a welcome ear, all ending in a mingle and networking hang time in the glorious surrounds of Melbourne’s Hasti Bala.
Our Industry Guest Speakers for GDBD are:
