Culture Jam is a creative crew from Melbourne who specialise in themed/narrative driven events, decor, and eclectic mashes of sub culture.
The events are immersive and interactive, and based around an overall theme key to each event. The World Beyond event tells a story of potential future realities and makes a political commentary about where we may be heading. The Town is full of micro-stories and narratives that play-out with actors, mini-events and skits.
Culture Jam always make a commentary on the real world, whether tongue in cheek, or more rawly needed commentary.
The fundamental idea behind the experience of our events is that art and theatre should be a two way experience, opposed to something that is consumed or observed.
Spaces come to life with actors, performers, installations, and epic set design. Those who come to our events have created a culture of bringing their own incredible surprises to share with the space, and this is where all the true magic happens. Dress-ups, skits, gifts, role-play and absurdity is all common language out our events, and the best is, everyone is prepared for the unexpected.
Our events have a strong environmental focus, and apart from World Beyond are family friendly. We like to create environments that are full of natural creativity and connection, opposed to hedonism. The vibes speak for themselves and they always attract amazing respectful people from all walks of life. Our events are inclusive and invite all who can come in to this fun and respectful vibe with an open mind.
Culture Jam has now expanded to a hire company, creating experiences, set designs, characters, creative direction and production for other events of all types.
As we expand we plan to grow into even more branches including a gaming and media subset too.
We pride ourselves on unique creativity, mind blowing ideas, and positive uplifting events that make change in peoples lives and the larger world. Check the ticket page for upcoming events and we will see you in the next world we co-create.
Message from the Director
Culture Jam is my first child and I've watched it grow from a rocking nightclub gig in 2010 into beautiful dynamic themed worlds put together by some of Melbourne's best artists.
I essentially steer the ship and have a grander vision for where Culture Jam can head, but more than anything, I am an amazing people and ideas magnet. I aim to take this projected towards unexplored creative and philanthropic experiments that aren't just restricted to change at festivals ,but enrich every day lives, and help those in need.
If you want to hear more about the vision, or contribute, all messages here go straight to me, and I would love to hear your ideas and interests. I am also love working with interns who want to learn about the event process, and collaborating with other big thinkers and doers.
Culture Jam relies on external support outside of the events too, and we are always looking for contributors who can help us bring our bigger visions to life. Please feel to contact me if you are interested in hearing some of our larger visions and how you can help support this, and therefore help others.
The future will be creative, and the future will be bright <3
