The Listener - the name given to the collection and conceptual work this season - is our take on the importance and beauty of story telling. Some stories have inspired us to such an extent that we decided to work with the people behind them. One is of surrealist artist Antonio Lourenco, a dissident of the former military regime in Portugal, who has hidden his artistic talent whilst spending the last 30 years working as a librarian in Sweden. Another is that of modern circus men Eos, Aaron and Valia who tell a vibrant story through their explosive acrobatics.
An essential source of inspiration for us is the abundance of great stories that surround us. We choose to slow down and simply listen, believing in the correlation between inspiration, perception and real action. This way of slowing down allows us to acknowledge what is going on around and within ourselves. In today’s world of intense information flow we find this increasingly relevant.

Presented by T-world, NEXT was dedicated to the past, present and future of the T-shirt industry. From 4 November to 11 December 2011, the intriguing industrial spaces of Sydney’s Cockatoo Island came alive. Within the cavernous steel confines of the Heavy Machine Shop was NEXT, a vibrant display of the planet's most comprehensive collection of graphic T-shirts.
Whether you’re an advocate for design, graffiti, skate, street or urban, the T-shirt is the singular identifying uniform speaking the voice of youth culture.
Stay tuned for another NEXT event coming soon.
