30 days 30 portraits by Vincent Fantauzzo
The event was held at RMIT's 'Project Space', and showcased the highly acclaimed ’30 Portraits 30 Days’ work of Vincent Fantauzzo.
We had the pleasure of hearing from Vincent in what was an entertaining, charming and insightful look at his work, as well as a reflection on inspiring stories of some the Australians he painted, including Bob Hawke, Baz Luhrmann and Asher Keddie.

The Lab's "Australian Leveling Construct"
Importantly, it was highlighted that the notion of egalitarianism in Australia is being challenged now more so than ever, which presents a unique opportunity for brands. Neale introduced the "Australian Levelling Construct" as a tool to help brand managers leverage this opportunity.
