Editorial Philosophy:

The Next Rush is a hyper-local independent city publication that serves to put the spotlight on the people and activities in our communities that may have been missed by the mainstream.

Our curation of stories serves 5 core mandates:
Independent news articles written under a collective voice,
with select opinion pieces
Topicality of events
Expression of ideas, challenging conventional notions
of experience and social constructs
Spotlight on members, businesses and initiatives in our community…

From thought provoking stories of independent film, to original theatre works and locally produced music, to story presentation across multiple formats, peer reviewed works characterising trends and motivation and material expressions of lifestyle – how we interact with these ideas, shapes us as people. In turn, defines the language and consciousness of our culture. It’s an ongoing search for the next rush which can only be successfully achieved by having fun while on that journey.

The next rush reader values
lifestyle products / services and leisure activities
