Throughout the duration of the project we’ll be hosting free live gigs and art events. They’ll usually only be announced just prior to commencing and capacity is strictly limited, so keep a keen eye on here, our newsletter and on our socials.

Pop-Up

Flash Forward Store

12pm – 8pm, Wednesdays – Sundays

261 Little Collins St, CBD

We've opened up a pop-up store in the heart of the city. The Store is the dedicated hub for Flash Forward’s commissioned artists and musicians to sell their art, records, merchandise, and other one-of-a-kind products. It will also be the only destination where you can purchase the final copies of many of our sold-out and exclusive vinyl pressings. Best of all, 100% of the profits from the Store will go directly to the artists. There is no greater way to support our local creatives this Christmas. Do pop in.

Part winter wonderland, part environmental horror show, 'In Every Dream Home a Heart Ache' is an allegorical ready-made of hard rubbish playhouses destined for landfill, repurposed to consider the idealisation of suburban life, throw-away society and the ecological impact of aspirational toys.

Gig

Jalang perform ‘Santau’ live

Friday June 18

The Curtin

Jalang (formerly Lái) play fast-paced and danceable D-beat punk, propelling the band’s ferocious vocals into the face of the listener. Vocalist Alda’s lyrics are delivered in Bahasa Indonesia and English, engaging with both her own and collective narratives that explore politics, religion, feminism and queer rights in South East Asia, and the diaspora in so-called Australia.
