Over the past few years, the PADC Commune events have been a great way for Perth creatives, agencies, students, designers and production gurus to catch up with a mug of coffee or beer in hand. But we’ve had feedback that a more structured approach, and more relevant events, would make a good thing even better.

So the PADC Committee has put their heads together and have created a series of Commune Events that will host relevant topics, industry trends, and showcase the latest media and creative products from around the industry.  We’ve also been given a new home with The Leederville Group, home to The Garden and Bill’s Bar & Bites, that will serve as our new venue sponsor for up and coming events. So, what does all this mean for our members?

Free Drinks & Nibbles on Arrival

At each Commune event, members will receive a free drink (beer, wine, bubbles or soft drink) and nibbles on arrival. Yay free stuff! The Leederville Group will also offer a discounted meal and drink offer on any Commune night for anyone wanting to kick on after the event, so there’s no excuse not to have an awesome time (and maybe even buy one of our poor PADC Student Members a drink!).

AMA Panels and Events

Our next Commune Event will be an AMA (well, more of an ADA) panel discussion for some of Perth’s best directors, “Ask Directors Anything”, on Thursday, 3rd of October. The night will be sponsored and hosted by the legends at Unruly, so please show your support on the night by enjoying a drink and bite and seeing some of the awesome video opportunities they offer.

To help us cater and select the best space for each event, it’ll help us massively if you select ‘Going’ on the Facebook event at least 24 hours before the date. Go on, it’ll make you feel better for doing some good in the world.


Loyalty Cards

The Leederville Hotel group will be giving free Loyalty Cards to PADC members on each night, which includes 5% off all food and drinks and 1 Loyalty Dollar for every $20 spent at various Leederville Hotel group venues including The Garden and Bill’s.

All you have to do is sign up as a member once you receive your card, and start saving!
