Identity with Amy Crow - CANCELLED
– Hosted at The Tivoli
part of a series on Identity
THEME - IDENTITY
What makes you, you?
Your identity is made up of multitudes — the stories you carry, the music you love, the challenges you overcome, the books you read, the communities you’re a part of, and more. But your identity is a colorful blend of not only what you consume or create, but also the questions you ask and what you’re willing to learn.
In her CreativeMornings talk, Lucy Bellwood shared, “When we box ourselves too tightly into a single identity or career path, we deprive ourselves of the nutrients necessary to remain connected to the world around us. We are lacking in vitamin curiosity.“
The things that make you unmistakably you are not just the eclectic edges, but the simple pillars, beliefs, and values that you simply can’t shake. What sort of spirit or energy do you bring to a room? How do you show up in the world? What are your pillars?
The most unique care and love you can give to your creative identity is to craft it with your own hands.
This month’s exploration of Identity is presented by our new Global Partner Basecamp!
Amy Crow is a Multi-Disciplinary Creative born and raised in Brisbane.
She has experienced a varied career path over the past fourteen years; starting in make-up out of school moving into a full hairdressing apprenticeship with world renowned company Toni&Guy. In between these two pursuits, she released two EPs as a solo folk musician. After finalising her apprenticeship she started her own mobile salon which she ran for five years. One of her clients introduced her to the idea of Graphic Design and Amy attended the same college completing an Advanced Diploma in Visual Communications. She also studied UX Design with General Assembly in the year post graduating and started an apparel line FUTURE=FEMALE by the end of 2017.
In 2018 - 2019 she ran pop up shops with FUTURE=FEMALE and also stocked an array of local and interstate makers, theming her pop ups and using her suite of skills to build miniature brand for each individual event.
She started up another business, YUNG MUNNY in 2018 as a resource platform for young up and comers who were searching for practical business advice on their start ups with the premise to build and support local creative community. She rebranded her salon to LOST SALON and placed it inside her full retail shop FORGE FORWARD at 709 Ann St at the beginning of 2020 and plans to run Forge like the FUTURE=FEMALE events; an ever changing space acting like a permanent pop up with each month changing brands, makers and concepts.
