Frankie and Karina

About Us

The Listening Station is the brainchild of northern beaches locals –  author Karina May, and artist and Art Bau gallery owner, Frankie Morgan.

Karina and Frankie first bonded over their love of books and the creative arts, and wanted to find a way to scale their own local book club so more people could experience its SUBLIME MAGIC  – enter ‘The Listening Station.’

Listen up, anarchists there’s a new kind of book club in town!

The name was an obvious choice with Frankie and Karina both having ‘lived’ in Berlin (Frankie for 7 years and Karina for 7 weeks ;)). They agreed that the abandoned cold war spy station perfectly encapsulated the unique energy and enthusiasm for the arts they wanted to bring to the beaches. 

Brought to you from an up-and-coming arts district, The Listening Station shakes up the standard book club formula through robust discussion and by unearthing never-before-heard insights in the lively author conversations.


The Space

Art Bau is a creative studio space in Brookvale on Sydney’s Northern Beaches where art is made. Owned by The Listening Station co-host, Frankie Morgan, it is a gallery and space for hire by makers for workshops.
