The Orcon Great Blend is back for 2012.
In conjunction with NetHui and The Edge, the Orcon Great Blend 2012 will be presented by Public Address at the Wintergarden on Thursday, July 12.
The event fuses music, art, cool digital stuff, and some smart bloggy-types with interesting things to say.
The first half of the show will be a panel discussion on 'Creativity in the Internet Age' featuring the writer and cartoonist Sarah E. Laing, Herald Online entertainment editor Hugh Sundae; musician, 95bFM graduate and freestyle internet correspondent Hayden East; and Pilot Magazine publisher and editor, Andy Pickering.
Then we go large on the art-about-media with a commissioned multimedia work from the wonderful Cut Collective, which will incorporate a new spoken word work from Tom Scott of Home Brew and @Peace fame.
Thereafter, we turn into a party, with a DJ set from Tom Scott, the Cut Collective Art Shop (more of this closer to the event, but you'll want to bring cash to buy pieces of the evening's work direct from the artists) and a few other things we'll firm up between now and then.
You can claim your FREE admission to the Orcon Great Blend 2012 via the RSVP form here.
