Explore contemporary art, urban design, heritage and its social context.
Here are three innovative ARTWALKs to explore Sydney's historic inner-city precincts of Kings Cross, Darlinghurst and Woolloomooloo as well as Millers Point and the Rocks: Green Bans Art Walk, Sydney East Precinct Art Walk and Kings Cross Art Walk.
1. Sydney East Art Walks: www.sydneyeastartwalk.info
Art Walk is an initiative of twenty prominent contemporary art galleries and art project spaces in the neighbourhoods of East Sydney, Darlinghurst and The Cross.
Art Walk is simple. Several times a year (spring, summer, autumn and winter) precinct galleries coordinate an afternoon of art, drinks and food, talks and conviviality. A program of talks links the galleries.
The next Sydney East Art Walk is Saturday 23 September 2017, 12-4pm

The project was opened with talks by Jack Mundey with response by Peter McClelland, president CFMEU and Father Edmund Campion with response by Joe Owens, former BLF secretary. Other talks were by Meredith Burgmann, co-author of Green Bans, Red Union, Catriona Moore and Pam Johnson on 'Art and the Expanded Social Field' and Pat Fiske, director of 'Rocking the Foundations: A history of the Builders' Labourers' Federation' at the Green Bans Film Night Finale, at the Police Citizens Boys Club in Woolloomooloo.
