Blueprint is a collaborative arts night hosted by Heir. Each event is curated by a team of artistic collaborators and showcase the finest DIY music and art from both local and touring artists. As we approach the festive season there will be gifts of delicious variety - fuzzy guitar riffs wrapped up in school desk doodles, make-your-skin-crawl sculpture sprinkled with a dusting of patterned papayas. All this as well as a fully fledged harp. Merry December everybody.
