Large Hadron Collider
Why not go on a journey inside the largest scientific experiment ever constructed? Buried deep under the border between Switzerland and France, CERN’s Large Hadron Collider is the work of 10,000 men and women from across the globe, united in their quest to uncover the fundamental building blocks of our universe.
This immersive exhibition now at the Powerhouse Museum, from the Science Museum, London, blends theatre, video and sound art with real artefacts from CERN, recreating a visit to the famous particle physics laboratory. Go behind the scenes to witness the uncovering of the Higgs boson, explore the 27-km collider and its cathedral-sized detector caverns, and discover how studying the subatomic world can point the way to a fuller understanding of our universe. Hear how Australian researchers and students are involved in this experiment that is at the frontier of scientific innovation.

A Muggle Goes To Hogwarts
~ PART OF THE SYDNEY FRINGE FESTIVAL~
Liam Power presents mind blowing slight of hand and muggle tricks
Liam Power is a magician not a wizard yet somehow he found himself in Hogwarts. How does a muggle with no magic blood fit into a school for wizards? He learns magic the old fashioned way with sleight of hand and misdirection.
A Muggle Goes To Hogwarts is a magic show with no actual magic just mind blowing slight of hand and muggle tricks.
If you want to see the closest thing to magic without an actual wizard (and let’s face it, they aren’t allowed to perform to muggles) then this is it.
Last year Liam performed his 1 man show Around The World In 80 Tricks to a sold out run.

R U OK? Day
R U OK?Day is an annual day in September (the second Thursday) dedicated to remind people to ask family, friends and colleagues the question, "R U OK?", in a meaningful way, because connecting regularly and meaningfully is one thing everyone can do to make a difference to anyone who might be struggling.
It is important to not just ask someone if they are feeling ok on just one day a year, but the day aims to raise awareness for people suffering in particular, to silent illnesses, such as depression and anxiety. It aims to raise awareness of these issues, and promotes how just asking someone how they're going is one way for people to find access to the help they need.
The Harry Jensen Community Center is holding its annual Are you OK? Day celebration!
Join them for a delicious afternoon tea and magic show, preferably with a friend who needs a little more sunshine in their day.
WHEN: Thursday 8 September 2016 from 2pm to 4pm
WHERE: Harry Jensen Centre

Corroberry: closing event - help transform the gallery space into a relaxed grazing ground
We invite you this Saturday to transform the gallery space into a relaxed grazing ground, in appreciation and discussion of our current exhibition Corroberry by Adelaide based artist Driller Jet Armstrong.
About the show:
“When we are presented with a European style painting of the Australian landscape we are presented with a lie that unwittingly serves to perpetuate the myth of Terra Nullius.
My work is about re-presenting, re-purposing, re-cycling, re-inventing and re-using original landscape paintingsas the site for discussions mainly around Ab-originality and Australian-ness. I steal and I appropriate but through this process a Hybrid is formed. An entirely new work emerges ascribed with fresh meaning and relevancy. I call this work Daubism and this has been my approach to practice since 1989. I’ve been vilified and vindicated for it but throughout I’ve remained its true believer and main protagonist.
Hipster culture has been described as the “embodiment of postmodernism as a spent force, revealing what happens when pastiche and irony exhaust themselves as aesthetics”. – Rob Horning (2009 – PopMatters)
For a subculture known for re-purposing the life out of everything and anything, Daubist art is the epitome of Hipster aesthetics and the proof that pastiche and irony are an inexhaustible resource. The thing I haven’t mentioned yet is that I’ve been working as a professional club deejay since 1985 and of course deejay culture influences me enormously in my everyday life. It should come as no surprise therefore that sampling and cutting and pasting has crossed over into my art and like modern music something new is created from something old. Ironically there’s nothing at all pastiche about that and the same can be said for Daubism.”
