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!
Based in the burgeoning content hub of Brisbane, we’ve made it our mission to support the local artistic community and create a collaborative collective – uniting the next generation of prosumers in pursuit of their passions.
Creators often feel like their work has to be perfect, but art is meant to be messy.
At The Slop Shack, we encourage artists to use the resources around them to make content in any way they can, no matter how sloppy looking. We can only succeed through failure, and the road to success is paved with persistence.

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 2021, The Slop Shack continues to create new shows, support dozens of collaborators, and host events. Stay tuned to the website for updates!
