Uncovering local talent
Creatives Uncovered (CU) is the marketing and PR initiative of Chic Petite Events, which aims to support emerging ‘creatives’ (think artists, photographers, dancers and designers) by offering them the opportunity to gain exposure. What’s exciting for local creatives is that CU is hoping to come to the Inner West in 2014, and are currently looking for venues, businesses, sponsors and creatives to be involved in four events. The organisation has built a fantastic reputation holding events such as fashion shows, live photo shoots, art exhibitions, hair and make up demos and live music gigs, and now they are interested in seeing what talent and venues they can find across the Inner West.

New cafe comes to Rozelle

The cafe adjoins BodyMindLife Yoga Rozelle at 711 Darling Street and, aside from the special menu, the owners hope to create a fun space where locals will be able to explore health food and wellness through community and film nights, feast events, workshops and cooking classes.

Mayor named in Marrickville
Councillor Jo Haylen (ALP) was elected Mayor of Marrickville at an Extraordinary Meeting of Council this month, becoming the youngest female Mayor of Marrickville to date.

Since then she has served as a senior adviser to the Federal Government and has broad experience in all levels of public service. Jo said she was proud and honoured to be representing her local community and understands that “good government is about listening to the community and getting things done.”
Councillor Rosana Tyler (Lib), will serve as Marrickville’s Deputy Mayor.
Wendi is a winner
Local milliner, Wendi Philpot, was named Wedding Accessory Designer of the Year last month at the Wedding Events of Australia (WEOA) Awards 2013 gala dinner held at the Sofitel. After 23 years of being a couture milliner – and priding herself on never having repeated a design in all that time – Wendi said the award was “a great honour.”
