Ibis: Your City, Our Bins at Sydney Comedy Festival

When Ibis' father died defending their home as bulldozers moved in to build Sydney Olympic Park, Ibis and Gran had nowhere to go.

Now fully grown and thriving in the urban sprawl of Sydney, Ibis is bravely championing the rights of Ibises and connecting Sydneysiders with the troubled past of the bin chicken* in a one hour workshop that will change the way you see your city.

Join Ibis on a journey inside the hearts and minds of the birds you hate, charting their journey to Sydney and showing there's much more to the ibis than you might think.

Post-its presents: Improv.ppt

Off the back of their sold out launch, Post-Its' 'Improv.ppt' is back. And this time it'll be inside a ~ trendy ~ Marrickville warehouse.

Each of us has secretly prepared a PowerPoint presentation and on the night, we’ll swap! You give our presenters the topic and the title of their talk and sit back and watch as they dive in with no prep and no net.

This is Powerpoint like you’ve never seen it before. No yawn, all brawn.
