Melbourne Sharpie Subculture Scene

Earlier in November we held a very successful event connected to our Putting It Out There: Melbourne in the 1970s exhibition. The event was titled “This is My City: Melbourne Sharpie Subculture Scene”.

Julie Mac, a former sharpie, gave a very entertaining lecture about the history of the sharpie culture in Melbourne.

Our photo show Julie Mac surrounded by some of those at the event – a mix of old sharpies and young people intrigued by the rebel culture that was distinctly Melbourne.
