Event Details

Creative Darebin Networking Breakfasts.

Networking is an essential part of your career.

If you live/work in Melbourne and you use your creative skills in any way this networking event is for you.


At our 61st Breakfast, we welcome our 28th                                       

SPECIAL GUEST David Booth (Ghostpatrol) artist.

Man drawing on wall

Born in Hobart, Tasmania. works and lives in Melbourne, Australia.


Working under the pseudonym Ghostpatrol, David Booth first made a name for himself on the walls of Melbourne’s laneways. Working with ephemeral techniques, by 2007 Booth had built an international reputation and fanbase as a street artist. But Booth’s practice, grounded in a passion for drawing and sketching, has always been split between ephemeral works — street-based works, as well as temporary sculptural and installation works — and works on paper and linen. As a result, Booth sees his practice as floating between the worlds of fine art, commercial design, fan service, large mural painting and commercial collaboration.


The legacy of his childhood environment — Tasmania being an isolated and halcyon island, densely populated with forests and bodies of water — is threaded through Booth’s practice. His imaginary realms feel unearthly, meditative and ethereal; Booth is a creator not of simply works, but entire worlds. His works themselves feel like falling into a daydream; at once intensely familiar and welcoming, and entirely otherworldly. They are alternate realities.


Booth’s finely-drawn worlds are woven in threads of hybrid animals, creatures and characters, pop culture references and childhood nostalgia. Booth’s workspaces often turn, as he works, into small shrines; indulging and entering the realm he is conjuring. The whimsical and innocent qualities of his works ostensibly belie their conceptual concerns with metaphysics, cosmic scale, curiosity-led science, quantum physics and futurism. Booth’s iconic visual language invites us to see beyond the scale of our earthly existence and the limits of our own atomic configuration.



Booth’s ongoing explorations are focusing, at present, on ambitious installation and painting projects and other multimedia experiments, often working collaboratively. These passion projects — among them, the Hepburn Wind Farm and the Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne — inform Booth’s studio practice and gallery work, and reflect the artist’s social and environmental conscience.



David is represented by Hugo Michell Gallery and Black Art Projects and has exhibited in Solo and Group exhibitions since 2009. His work is held in the National Gallery of Australia, Artbank, Parliament House, Melbourne Museum, and the National Library of Australia Art collections.


David will join us for breakfast at the Cedar Bakery on 6th April to talk about his career and his creative ethos.

I really love attending these meetings when my life/work/family schedule allows.   Part information, part entertainment and part support group.


The Northside Hub blog recently said this: 

It’s heartening to see people from the arts and creative communities getting involved with networking too, asaside from the obvious benefits of connections, advice, profile raising, finding out new information and increasing your confidence, there’s also an escape from the solitude that plagues artists, writers and creators. Nothing beats that human connection - not even burying your head in your phone or going on a Netflix binge!

And these days, networking is more necessary than ever. It’s not just for the job hunters anymore, but an essential tool in our current environment where employment and industries can be temporary and/or uncertain, so it’s good to keep up with the latest opportunities, contacts, apps, venues, grants and so forth.

For the whole blog read here!

Thanks for organising these Bruno. I had a great time last week. See you and everyone else at the next one!


Had an absolute blast! Thank you:)


I really enjoyed my first CDNB and look forward to the next. Thank you so much for coordinating and promoting this. I have revived my Instagram account and bought a new journal at Kmart on my way to work after leaving yesterday morning, and feel positively inspired!!!
