lack of accountability.

Not knowing where to start.


The busyness trap.



Do you have an idea for a side project that you're excited and passionate about, but struggle to put into motion?

When it comes to starting or sustaining a labour of love, there are a multitude of blocks – from self-doubt or its close relative procrastination, to a shortage of time or deadlines to spur you into action. 

Side Project Sessions is a new fortnightly event series currently in Melbourne designed to tackle these common blocks to help you make way on your side project alongside a community of like-minded creatives.

Think of it as peer pressured productivity!

Come along, 
every second sunday

"I just wanted to say how great the Side Projects Session was on Sunday. It is such a great idea – lovely space and lovely people. I did more on my side project than I have in a year!" – Mollie  


"I have just arrived home after a side project session. MY GOODNESS! I got more solid writing done in this one Sunday morning than my brain has let me do for the past month. There is a magic to this accountability space that Madeleine (and her bell) expertly conduct... So many riches from one morning." – Victoria

“It's so impressive how addictive it can become waiting for that bell to go off and making sure you feel satisfied that you got enough done during the session." – Amelia


“Side Project Sessions has been a wonderful discovery – working alongside other creatives, being held accountable, setting time aside time for my work and committing to it. I’ve been so productive in the sessions and they’ve helped me to understand my work patterns.” – Bethany
