Your ticket to RUSSH Weekend – our digital festival for creative minds

RUSSH Weekend is back for its third instalment.

Our two-day special event will take place again on the weekend of April 24 and 25. Straight to your device, RUSSH Weekend is our festival for creative minds. It's a weekend of virtual events, hosted exclusively on our Instagram channel live.

We believe that distance should never be a barrier to sharing big ideas and enlivening our creative spirits. If our last year has taught us anything, it's that connection and collaboration is essential - and always possible. Our homage to creative minds, RUSSH Weekend comes direct to your own living room, connecting us all. Even as we're apart.

We've prepared a curated, two-day calendar of classes, talks and events for your enjoyment. As with our past RUSSH Weekend events, this iteration will feature Australian creative, makers, activists, educators and people who inspire us and our community. Our goal is to give you intimate access to some of the most inspiring and creative people in Australia.

So, who can you expect to see at RUSSH Weekend? This time round, we're releasing the line-up in full so you have plenty of time to bookmark these dates in your calendar.
