Calling all creatives on the Sunshine Coast - The Lighthouse Exchange is gaining momentum and needs your support!
The brainchild of the entrepreneurial - and creatively passionate - Leon Russell, The Lighthouse Exchange has just had its second creative ‘meet-up’ at the Lion’s Den Espresso Bar, Coolum. I ventured along to check out the buzz (and the coffee) and came away inspired! Leon’s vision is to not only promote the creative community on the Sunshine Coast, but to also create a physical space - an actual creative hub - where people from across all creative industries (or just creative souls at heart) can converge. Currently he is negotiations to rent a multilevel space in Cotton Tree that will house a cafe with wi-fi, a workshop space, and studio spaces for hire. It is a brave, bold and wildly exciting concept! Leon's concept not only promises to give the creative scene on the Sunny Coast a huge amount of exposure, it also holds the promise of encouraging new and exciting creative partnerships.
I love the idea of promoting our vibrant creative community here on the coast, and I applaud Leon for what he’s striving to achieve. If you’re interested in finding out more, or how you can get involved, The Lighthouse Exchange will have its next ‘creative meet-up’ in August. You can request to join The Lighthouse Exchange Facebook group to receive updates, Like the Lion’s Den Espresso Bar Facebook Page or Instagram Feed, or perhaps when next in the neighbourhood, you can swing by the Lion’s Den Espresso Bar in Greenoaks Drive, Coolum and have a chat to the man himself.
Coffee + vision + contagious enthusiasm = Sunshine Coast Creative Community Hotspot… Watch this space!
