ABOUT US

WHAT DO WE CREATE?

The Slop Shack produces a popular YouTube webseries, three podcasts, collaborates with artists on music videos, works with clients on promotional material, and hosts events (like our annual film festival!)… all while building a family of local content creators!

OUR MISSION

“Our mission is to blur the lines between consumer and creator by uniting a generation of creative minds and giving them a place to express their talent and follow their dreams; to become the imagination generation.”

Creators often feel like things have to be perfect.

Here, we embrace the slop. We understand feeling slack. And we’re all about using the resources around you to make content in any way you can – no matter how sloppy looking.

Because art is meant to be messy.

As both a media company and creative collective, The Slop Shack can help you find a home for that mess, and polish it into something you can be proud of.

HISTORY

THE SLOP SHACK was born in improv. After Team Old Man Jenkins unexpectedly won the Youth Theatresports Grand Final in 2017, they had to tell their story. Launched in December of 2017 with The SLOP Podcast, The Slop Shack began attracting artists of all calibers, building a collection of fascinating interviews about all forms of artistry. After the launch of SLACK, the dedicated Old Man Jenkins podcast, the network expanded rapidly.

As it became clear that Brisbane was in need of a creative collective – and a grassroots platform for up-and-coming creators – The Slop Shack initiated PHASE 2: Building the IMAGINATION GENERATION.

As of 2020, The Slop Shack continues to create new shows, support dozens of collaborattors, and (once restrictions lift) return to hosting events. Stay tuned to the website for updates!
