We're feeling inspired about people & place after Beers and Big Ideas!

We were lucky enough to hear an incredibly inspiring talk from one of Australia's leading placemakers, Gilbert Rochecouste. 

Submissions to Beers and Ideas Round 5 are now open!

How it works

We've created a process that makes it easy to turn a 'how-cool-would-that-be' idea into a real-life placemaking project.

We host event nights where cool ideas are presented to a cool crowd, who pay $10 for a drink and a vote. The idea with the most votes is funded with all of the money raised on the door.

We've hosted 4 events, funded 4 projects and we're stoked! Click below to read all about it.
