Event Details

Dare Jennings is one of Australia’s global success stories. He is the founder of Mambo clothing, Phantom records and Deus Ex Machina, yet according to Dare, he has no business knowledge to share. So how do you create cult brands that cut across age and lifestyles? You toss out the rule-book and follow your instincts.

What started with stripping back and customising motorcycles in a gritty inner-west Sydney workshop — along with screen printing a few t-shirts — has morphed into the multi-faceted beast that is Deus Ex Machina turning over $60 million in apparel, accessories and dead-cool bikes as well as running publishing projects, recording deals, cafes, festivals and retreats from Sydney to Milan to LA to Bali. The cornerstone? Everything is built on coveted experiences.

Dare will be joined by his good friend James Valentine — host of Afternoons on ABC Radio Sydney. Expect a broad ranging conversation touching on politics, music, surfing and — those bikes — with a few tips and tricks for success thrown in for good measure.

Access and Inclusion

  • Wheelchair accessible - Access to the venue is suitable for wheelchairs (toilets, ramps/lifts etc.) and designated wheelchair spaces are available.
  • Auslan Interpreted - Auslan interpreted events are for audiences who are Deaf and use Australian Sign Language (Auslan) as their primary means of communication. Experienced Auslan theatre interpreters stand to the side of the stage and translate what the speakers are saying or Auslan signing the text and dialogue live. Audiences requiring this service are seated in the section closest to the interpreter to ensure good sightlines.
  • Hearing loop - A hearing loop (sometimes called an audio induction loop) is a special type of sound system for use by people with hearing aids. The hearing loop provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to 'T' (Telecoil) setting. Many venues have an induction hearing loop system. Check if your venue has this system.
  • Companion card - The Companion Card is for people with a significant permanent disability, who always need a companion to provide attendant care type support in order to participate at most available community venues and activities.
