It’s Primary function is it operates as a film lab, that runs multiple events like exhibitions, spoken word nights, poetry, live music, talks and is the hub for the majority of Geelong’s creative gatherings. As well as being a central hub for creative people to have conversations and get help with any photography related queries. Josh’s time management is incredible while juggling the responsibilities of Analogue Academy he is a member of the band called ‘Final Final’ and still pursues his main passion drawing, creating his own art.
