From June 2016 – July 2017 Cockatoo Creative was an amazing space. One day I will put into words how we got here, what we did, and why we moved on…

For a short year this space was great and really started to build momentum. But even though we were promised verbally 3-5 years, when our lease came up a termination notice was given and we have to be out by 1st July. A typical case of dodgy landlords telling you want they want, whenever they want.
