It’s been a long windy road from starting Bizoo zine a decade ago in the backwaters of Toowoomba town to taking the final book across Australia’s capital cities and regional towns while we deliver planned and guerrilla workshops on all things DIY/DIT (Do It Yourself/Do It Together).
Last year while touring through regional QLD, Australia, one of the hardest things to track down was a venue that suited our needs and offered as much access as possible to potential participants. A portable pop up venue out on the street, in laneways, on the beach, or at festivals or parties in the backyard.
With a love of bicycles and bringing the workshop to the people, this pop up bike trailer has been designed to fold down and away for plane and car trips, but fold out to ride around the country too. Workshops on gardening, stenciling, zine making, homebrew beers – what can’t you do with your own pop up venue ?
We realised that we could create our own multipurpose venue that we take TO the participants and the concept for the Pop Up Bicycle Trailer was born. This trailer will enable us to continue our work and expand the scope of where we can hold the workshops.
It would be amazing if you could help us make this a reality Thanks to my amazing friends, I can offer some pretty fun and random rewards you should check out – zines, accommodation, beer, postcards from the road and more !
