Today Joey speaks to the owner of Oxford Art Factory Mark Gerber.
When Mark Gerber moved to Australia in 1971 he was a ten year old with a budding appreciation for the arts. His life to that point split between Denmark and the Netherlands.
His new home city of Sydney would be the launch pad for global careers, as a musician, dj, actor, model, and promoter all driven by an obsessive fascination culture - the new and the exciting.
But it was in 2005 when he took over a former record store three blocks from Hyde Park in the inner Sydney suburb of Darlinghurst that a long term dream of an inclusive, innovative creative space would come to life.
It would be called the Oxford Art Factory and over the past 11 years, under Mark’s management, it has go onto become one the most respected cultural institutions in Sydney.
