Heesco & Ben Shewry @ Space2b

Q&A with Heesco & Ben Shewry

FRIDAY 8th OCTOBER 6PM
Street Art meets Culinary Art: World renowned street artist Heesco, lauded for his stunning silo works in regional Victoria, joins forces with Ben Shewry, the multi award-winning, hat-accumulating chef and owner of Attica restaurant, in this very special LIVE Q&A session. The pair forged a close bond when Heesco painted a mural in Higson Lane,  Melbourne featuring Ben alongside other high-profile industry names in 2017. While Covid has played havoc with the arts and hospitality industries, these ground-breaking innovators have managed to flourish. Heesco’s talents will be on show at Space2b once again with painted street games, inspired by the challenges of keeping children active in lockdown. Ben, meanwhile, turned the food world on its head with his pivot to ‘Attica At Home’, inviting diners to experience Michelin star meals on the couch.
Talk about having your cake and eating it too!

Friday Night Drinks… Just like the ‘old’ days

FRIDAY 15TH OCTOBER 6PM
Remember way back in the pre-COVID days when we would commemorate the end of the working week with a celebratory tipple? Well, our circumstances may have changed but our habits don’t have to. Wink, wink. Join us as we mark the end of our Feels Like Home Festival by sharing some of our favourite drink recipes from around the world. We deserve it - after all!
