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

Objectivity
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.


Cross-Channel Reach:

Trending events, pop culture news, independent and/or local Australian entertainment are highly sought after.  The Next Rush (TNR) Instagram audience has a preference for food and events, while Facebook TNR audiences are interested in family focused, entertainment and action packed activities.   Linkedin TNR readers prefer news on technology, premium luxury goods, destination events and workplace social science research.  Twitter TNR interests are community driven and people focused, responding to personality profiles or popular culture news of the day.

Once a food focused account (previously ‘Random Din Dins’, ‘Sydney Dinner and Events, Sydney Shenanigans, Hotel Escapades’  2013-2015), the diversification of content in the past 6 months, sees a shift as we re-establish a new audience searching for the new scope of content now being  presented that’s inline with the main website title.
