The theme of the night focused on entrepreneurship and risk taking: 

"In business and life, it pays to challenge the status-quo and follow your passion. Around the world we're seeing new brands, businesses and markets emerge as a result of collective risk taking. Even in our own backyard, our City is full of disruptive innovators."

We had an awesome all female lineup of inspiring speakers including Sally Hill from Wildwon (read more about Sally's 'Five lessons from a Sydney Entrepreneur' here), Gen George from OneShiftJobs, Georgia Harley from Caring Canary and Victoria Garcia from Surrocodelia

All ideas dropped on the night can be found here [PDF] or [WORD]. DOWNLOAD. PRINT. SHARE.

Thanks to everyone who came along and sorry to those who missed out! We promise our next event, wherever it is, will be BIGGER!

Thanks also to Golden Age Cinema and Bar and the City of Sydney for their ongoing support.

Idea Bombing Melbourne Launches with 'PLAYFUL CITY'

Idea Bombing Melbourne Launches with 'PLAYFUL CITY'

WE'RE EXCITED TO SEE THE IDEA BOMBING FAMILY GROW AND WITH A NEW WEBSITE ON ITS WAY, CAN'T WAIT TO FEATURE OUR EVER-EXPANDING NETWORK OF CHAPTERS. WHILE WE WAIT FOR THE UPGRADE, WHICH WILL FEATURE INDIVIDUAL PAGES FOR EACH CHAPTER, WE HAVE THE PLEASURE OF MAKING THEIR NEWS, OUR NEWS. 

ENTER IDEA BOMBING MELBOURNE - OUR NEWEST CHAPTER AND LATEST ADDITION TO THE FAMILY. ONE OF THE IBMELB CREW, CAROLINE BRUCKNER, SHARES SOME INSIGHTS FROM THEIR FIRST IDEA BOMBING SESH AND THE TOP IDEABOMBS/THEMES DROPPED ON THE NIGHT.

After months of creative brainstorming, venue wrangling, and late-night pub sessions, the first ever Melbourne Idea Bombing was held at ArtPlay by the Yarra. We asked the question, 'How can we make Melbourne a more playful city?', and boy, did Melbourne ever deliver!

We called upon three experts to introduce the Idea Bombing audience to the social, cultural, physical and technology-driven elements that unite us through play. The future they described looks awesome too - one where our children learn through games, and urban spaces integrate with technology, where the places we work and study are actually something we gravitate towards – but they also delved into the potential of play to make our community more connected.

James Wilson, Principal Architect at Lyons, kicked us off with an engaging visual display that showed us how his team incorporated the energy and vibrancy of the city of Melbourne into the design of RMIT's iconicSwanston St Building. In a departure from the grey and brown universities of old, RMIT Swanston St features walls of red, green and yellow, which are dotted with tactile geometric patterns. It’s still considered a radical design because it provides so much informal space to students and because it also incorporates a dynamic, mutable form into its external structure. Featuring multiple ‘play spaces (such as basketball courts and BBQ areas), sweeping views of the city, ample natural light, state-of the art interactive zones, along with top green credentials, the result is a building that’s not only a stimulating place of learning but one that recognises that ‘leisure spaces’ actually encourage creativity and collaboration.

Next up, Helen Rowe from CoDesign Studio held us enthralled with her vision for 'Play Streets', a project that allows neighbourhoods to close the streets to traffic and offer a day of free, unstructured activity for kids and kidults alike. Through ‘Play Streets’ and other projects, Helen and her team work to ‘activate’ public spaces and empower local communities. Their low-cost, high-impact approach to neighbourhood enhancement engages individuals by encouraging them to interact with their surrounds and each other, resulting in fun places where locals like to hang out. She explained how the principles of 'tactical urbanism' can quickly transform a space into a place that people love.

Controversially, she then asked us all to think back to the most dangerous thing we did as a child to get us thinking about what made playing outdoors fun. Let's just say some of us were more ... adventurous than others.

Finally, Dr Steffen Walz, Founder and Director theGames, Entertainment and Experimental Lab(GEELab) at RMIT treated us to a sneak peak of his brand new strategic card game ‘Future Deck Australia’. He describes it as a serious and quirky take on inventing Australia’s future.  An expert on gamification, Steffen demonstrated for the crowd how game-play principles can be used to shake up linear thinking and act as a catalyst for creativity.

As ideas incubator for industry, a few rounds of ‘Future Deck Australia’ certainly tested the Idea Bombing audience. We surfaced a handful of novel, globally-minded start-up ideas for business and government. Anyone up for developing an ‘augmented reality simulator for mining uranium under the deep ocean’? It's an understatement to say we were pretty wowed.

Then of course it was over to our Melbourne streetscape-inspired Idea Wall, and the audience, who embraced the theme so wholeheartedly that we collected a whopping 270+ idea bombs! Our Idea Wall ended up chock full of great ideas. They range from the practical and creative, to the downright hilarious. It was wonderful to have such an engaged crowd who actively worked through the issue of how to make Melbourne a more fun and enjoyable place to live, coming up with many viable solutions.

THE PLAYFUL CITY: KEY THEMES

  • Make the commute to work more enjoyable. Suggestions include trampoline walkways, pets on trains, conductors who sing, dance parties on public transport, no-technology carriages, chatter carriages, and whoopee cushions on seats.
  • Greater interaction with animals in daily life. Pets in the workplace came up many times.
  • More organised social opportunities that don’t involve booze.
  • More organised public games.
  • More public art, especially ones you can to interact with in the streets.
  • Please humanise regulatory authorities (the police, OH&S, parking officers need to chill out.)
  • Actively removing ourselves from technology. Greater mindfulness.
  • Acknowledge the need for leisure time during the work day. Things like sleep pods, animal interaction, non-work hours, team activities...
  • Reclaim streets for community, not cars. More bikes, less street traffic in urban spaces.
  • Encourage sustainability by applying gamification principles to everyday activities, eg. offer rewards for recycling.
  • Bonding over shared meals. This includes getting your mates together for dinner parties, picnics, street picnics, etc.
  • Share more stories with one another.
  • Random acts of cheek. Things like clowns selling MYKI tickets at the station, flashmobs, etc.
  • Surprises and secrets around the city - hidden doors, secret passageways, textured walls, lego in the cracks, street art.
  • More community art-making opportunities, such as play-do or clay, free street art workshops, a paint bar.
  • Better ways to manage the work-life balance, initiated by your employers. This includes organised or subsidised childcare or playgrounds near work.
  • A more interactive environment, generally. You want to see obstacle courses around town, flying foxes between buildings, digital objects that respond to your touch or presence.
  • A greener Melbourne that can better embrace outdoor activities
  • Organised music events that promote community & participation
  • You want to get active and see more cultural and community activities geared towards the physical, a deliberate move away from the digital.
  • You want more opportunities to embrace creative expression.
  • More whimsy! You want more bubbles , tea parties, dress ups, trampolines, memorial to imaginary friends, and old fashioned games like hopscotch.

Huge thanks to all our speakers, Moondog Brewery, Emma Baker and Kiernan Ironfield Photography, and everyone else who attended. It was a super fun, stimulating evening.

"What is Sydney’s sound? Every city has one, that unique beat that has been woven across time and space. In New Orleans, blues and jazz sings from the street almost 24/7, Nashville is the home to country and the famous composer, Chopin, can be associated with Paris. These cities have a unique sound and the best ones, promote it at every opportunity. So where does this leave Sydney? How can we make music a part of our everyday lives and by doing so, support artists and urban life?" - Idea Bombing Sydney

Idea Bombing in Shell Harbour

Idea Bombing in Shell Harbour

Like most Councils we [Shellharbour] find ourselves thinking; if only we had a bigger budget, more time and a captured audience to consult with…Not just the naysayers.

We have found however that creativity arises and thrives within these very limitations – these limitations have not defined who we are but inspire us to think more creatively ….  Yes, it's challenging, but these boundaries have inspired us to think outside the box.

Part of unlocking our creative potential was firstly understanding who we are as a city, and ensuring that our engagement captures our diverse population.

Located on the beautiful South Coast, Shellharbour is a City of contrast.  While we have one of the youngest populations in NSW, our over 60's are set to double in the next 20 years! With a median age of 37, we have a high population of young families and people who commute by car and also travel to work outside of the area.

An example of how we engage our often hard to reach community was recently demonstrated through 'Creative Shellharbour', an engagement program designed to help shape Council's new Arts and Cultural Development Strategy.

'Creative Shellharbour' included a program of outreach consultation to members of our community. This included pop up opportunities at our schools, libraries, businesses, local shopping centres and finally a weekend of inspiration and ideas generating!

We plastered our exhibition centre wall to wall with paper and invited the community to bomb their ideas for a 'Creative Shellharbour' – no matter how big or small.

A creative evening was hosted with guest speakers from a range of creative industries. These 'lighting talks' empowered our community by providing firsthand experience on the do's, don'ts and how's.

An interesting outcome was the realisation that Council does not necessarily have need to be the funder or provider for cultural activity, rather the role of local government should focus on enabling and supporting our local creatives.

Hearing these perspectives encouraged our community to think even further outside of the box and shifted their focus from what Council should do, to how residents and artists can work with their Council for the benefit of the community.

We also engaged a roving street performer to encourage people to idea bomb on the move. This did its job with people approaching us and asking 'what's this about'?

So if you were asked 'would you take you city on a date?' – what would you say?

Hell yes! It makes me smile, it's beautiful, interesting and engaging or NO WAY, I am running a mile, this one's tired and depressing, nothing ever changes!

What's your big idea for your community? #creative Shellharbour

Council staff involved in the project were:

That's a Wrap! The Gallery Edition ends with a Bang!

That's a Wrap! The Gallery Edition ends with a Bang!

Woah! 8 weeks go fast!

Our most ambitious project yet (aka the Gallery Edition) finished with an action packed week and an Idea Bombing session on Friday night looking at Design & the City. If you missed it, or couldn't make it to Art Space Futures, here's a recap of the main points from both events 'speaker presentations' as seen by Angela Bee:

  • When doing something creative, be ready to take risks and argue a lot

  • With events, consider the event AND social/online app experience

  • Artwork is a living entity- its a living voice and engages the artist and the audience

  • Can being online ever replace physically being somewhere?

  • Turn a problem into a solution

  • Architectural lighting adds to the #environmental impact and #city #architecture #energyconsumption

  • “Design is everywhere”

  • Don’t hesitate but go for it

You can also find more information on our speakers and collaborators here.

At the moment we're in the process of collecting all the #ideabombs and we plan on sharing these via our social media channels over the coming weeks! We can however confirm there were 231 ideas dropped during the 8 weeks - an amazing amount of creativity and imagination! Thanks to everyone who was involved and contributed to the success of the Gallery Edition! As always, more to come! Watch this space.

New Installs Bumping into the Gallery Edition

New Installs Bumping into the Gallery Edition

It's been a crazy few weeks since we launched the Gallery Edition in early July!

Part 1 of the Gallery Edition was a huge success and it was great to see so many people attend Art Space Futures on 23 July as we asked the question; What is the future of art space in Sydney? Many idea bombs were added to the wall with a number of ideas making reference to activation and programming of art space.

So this got us thinking, should we actually deliver some of these ideas and add them to the existing installs? Why not!

Here's what we're bringing to life for the final 2 weeks of the Gallery Edition...


1. MAY, PATRICK FILETI (BUMPING IN 20-23 AUGUST)

One idea bomb in particular, 'film in the gallery' spoke to us as something we could deliver before the exhibition had concluded. Enter, 'May', an award winning short film by Patrick Fileti, a Sydney based Filmmaker who works across the fields of advertising, art and film. May will be screening during gallery hours Wednesday - Saturday 11am-5pm. See more at www.patrickfileti.com


2. YOGA (18 AUGUST)

Other idea bombs from 23 July, including yoga and teaching workshops, will join the screening of May during the last week of the Gallery Edition.


3. TEACHING WORKSHOPS (19 AUGUST)

Other idea bombs from 23 July, including yoga and teaching workshops, will join the screening of May during the last week of the Gallery Edition.


In addition to the above programming, we're pumped to announce a new addition to the Exhibition.

4. BEAUTY AND THE GREY BEAST: SURPRISING TALES FROM PRISON, OFF THE RECORD PRODUCTIONS (BUMPING IN 13-16 AUGUST)

Last year we dropped #ideabombs at Young Henrys on how we can better connect in Sydney. A big theme from that night was actually pretty simple - it was about starting a conversation, sharing stories and listening without judgment or hidden agendas. Our alumni, Jordan Bryon, has done some amazing work on this, and most recently has been working with prisoners in Junee.

Beauty and the Grey Beast install day.

Beauty and the Grey Beast install day.

Jordan & the team at Off The Record Productions will bring us stories from the inside with Beauty and the Grey Beast: Surprising Tales from Prison. The install speaks about a broken system, "Something isn't right with our communities because prison populations are increasing, and something isn't right with corrections because more than half of those incarcerated are reoffending." says Jordan Bryon.

Beauty and the Grey Beast: Surprising Tales from Prison springs from interactions with inmates and correctional staff at Junee Correctional Centre. It takes a ‘triptych’ approach to building a conversation around prison and the potential of art and cultural activities as gateways to self-development. 

It all started with two statistics;

1. Since 2012 the NSW prison population rose by 13 per cent, reaching a record high in March this year of 10,917.
2. 55% of those people have served time before.

The install incorporates a documentary film based at Junee Correctional Centre highlighting the importance of the Cultural Centre at the prison, an installation exploring the different perspectives on prison life using outtakes from the doco and a zine of art and writing made with the inmates. Featuring rarely captured moments of staff and inmates sharing their knowledge on prison Beauty And The Grey Beast allows you a glimpse inside. Additionally the installation asks you to provide your responses, hooking them to the wall of the cell. These will be taken back to the inmates so they can reply in their chosen art form.

This project is buoyed by the belief in the ability of people to change for the better however we understand there are necessary restrictions when we consider victims of crime. For this reason the video content of inmates is limited.

Idea Bombing Launches Gallery Exhibition

Idea Bombing Launches Gallery Exhibition

Since May 2013, Idea Bombing has been popping up in underground carparks, breweries, train carriages and platforms, museums and even rooftops across Sydney (see photos of past events here).

And now it’s getting even bigger! For the next seven weeks we’re bringing you the stories of your idea bombs collected over the past 12 months as part of the Gallery Edition at Object: Australian Design Centre.

In total, more than 600 ideas have been dropped over the past year and exciting themes have emerged. As citizens we want greener spaces, a more supportive professional life, a more connected community, and a more creative city. Now, we’re making these themes real; from chat seats and luscious hanging gardens, to a giant cityscape, we’re encouraging you to dream big and re-imagine the use of the gallery.

Interested and want to know more? 

Time Out wrote about us and you can visit the gallery Wednesday – Saturday 11am – 5pm for a closer look. You can also attend one of our upcoming Idea Bombing sessions looking at the future of art space and design.

 Idea Bombing launches in Newcastle

Idea Bombing launches in Newcastle

by Idea Bombing Newcastle co-founders Emily Davies O'Sullivan and Stephanie Moscovis.

The Newcastle arm of Idea Bombing had their inaugural event last Tuesday.  The event was centred around the question “How can we make Newcastle more creative?”.

In the lead up to the event the enthusiasm for Idea Bombing was out of control.  Initial anticipation for attendance was optimistically 30 people, but in the weeks leading up to the event it was clear that the people of Newcastle just wanted to bomb!  The enthusiasm was felt at all levels, with Newcastle Now being keen to be involved from the earliest conception of the event.  So many people approached us who were happy to be involved and everyone who we asked to be involved jumped at the opportunity.

The speakers for the night covered a variety of the creative industries in Newcastle and presented a complete spectrum of what is possible and what should be strived for in the future. 

Our first speaker of the night, Ben Greaves, Co-founder of the Office of Student Architecture (OSA), set the scene for the role that students play.  He outlined how he had contributed and the importance of initiative in getting things done. He posed the question; what could be done with $100 to make your area more creative?  Backed by his extensive portfolio of projects that he and the OSA have been involved in, he painted an impressive picture of what is possible.

Ben Greaves was followed up by our second Ben for the night, Ben Mitchell. Ben Mitchell has a very impressive CV for creativity.  Currently he is the President of the Roost Collective, a Renew Newcastle initiative which simply explain themselves as expanding opportunities for creative and professional development in Newcastle.  Ben has been involved in a range of creative pursuits which he outlined for us on the night, from the value of engaging with other creatives through events, to the importance of just pursuing creativity for creativity sake.  He asserted that Newcastle had a vibrant creativity currently but that it’s just a matter of knowing where to look and making it more obvious through getting involved.

Luke Burrell, Creative Novocastrian Royalty, was next to the rug at the front of the room.  Luke has helped found a number of amazing initiatives around town and is currently in the process of setting up INNX, a workspace for the creative industries.  His core message was to encourage us all to be desperate enough to get off your bum and embrace the freedom of ignorance to be creative without concern for the consequences.

The night was rounded out by Roderick Smith, Chairperson of Renew Newcastle, he provided an overview of the elements of creativity he has been involved and gave his thoughts on what is the creative economy.  At the conclusion of the speakers, the audience was eager to get bombing and mingling (and no doubt drinking).  The Idea Wall was soon awash with great ideas.  It was an awesome opportunity for a variety of people to come together to contribute and contribute they did!

Image courtesy Yvonne Mullane.

The event was held at the Edwards Bar, in their very cool event space (which doubles as a car park by day).  Our friends at the Edwards indulged us, like spoilt children, letting us set up the wall on their wall and were open to anything we suggested.  In keeping with the theme, we were able to involve a number of creative people in the event, in addition to the speakers.  Our wall featured an awesome artwork by Anthony Ferris and our promotional material was made ultra-awesome by Huw Rogers’ poster.  Our photos on the night were taken by the very talented Yvonne Mullane and the scene was set by two very gifted blues guitarists Nicholas Dowman and Peat Holz.  

All in all the first Idea Bombing Session in Newcastle can only be described as a success.  It was great to have the support of the Sydney arm too, with John coming up for the night and lending all his talents and enthusiasm.  Where to for IBNewie you may ask…Well first thing first is to see if Newcastle Now will be able to put some of the ideas into action, keep building the IBNewie networks and importantly start planning the next event.  Just quietly it is looking like the next one will be along a very different theme to that of the first, which will be an exciting development too.
