Hop on board and help drive new and exciting creative initiatives on the Gold Coast!
The community's beloved Rabbit + Cocoon are in their final weeks of their Pozible campaign, which endeavours to raise much needed funds for the development of their cultural contribution to the city.
Rabbit + Cocoon aim to crowdfund $12,000 in total, which will go toward achieving the following milestones:
- Promotional video / short film
- Upgrade to multi-purpose communal space
- Book and brochures
- Marketing materials
As an independent initiative run full-time by a tiny group of volunteers we rely heavily on the goodwill and participation of the wider community. We are passionate about our city, and if you know us personally you know how hard we have worked to get this far, and how committed our collective is towards shaping the cultural future of our city.
We agree that the team at Rabbit + Cocoon have done an amazing job establishing a community driven, creative hub for the Gold Coast, and we encourage everyone to support their amazing initiatives and to help grow the profile of creativity in our city.

Real Scenes is a series of films, developed by Resident Advisor and Bench, in which we explore the musical, cultural and creative climate within electronic music's key destinations. We'll look at the role singular figureheads—producers, DJs, promoters—play in making their city's music scene a point of world-wide interest. We'll also look at places, spaces and inspirations, seeking out the essence of what gives these hyper-local scenes a truly global resonance.
Berlin has always been a special place, and especially so when it comes to electronic music. When the Berlin Wall came down in 1989, techno became the underground soundtrack to the reunion between East and West. In recent years, it's become an international destination for ravers - a cheap place to party with clubs that are renowned throughout the world.
Techno has become a business in the meantime. Yet Berlin still maintains a credibility that other cities lack. To understand why, RA and Bench have teamed up for another edition of Real Scenes. We went to the German capital eager to find out about its unique history and the reasons behind its continued relevance.
