Art and About - 19 September - 12 October 2014
Art & About Sydney is a collaborative arts festival where every street, laneway, building site, intersection and thoroughfare is a canvas for creation and storytelling.

From home-delivered theatre performances in private living rooms, to Sydney’s largest backyard party in Martin Place, Art & About Sydney 2014 is set to excite and delight.

With a program boasting works from the quirky to the quintessentially Australian, local and international artists will present works that explore the festival theme of ‘endangered’ from 19 September to 12 October.

Lord Mayor Clover Moore said the 13th Art & About festival contains a unique three week program of works that will surprise and delight the city.

“This program of artworks and performances provides great insights and reflections on our rapidly changing society. I invite everyone to come and enjoy the wonderful things on offer”

This year, Art & About Sydney explores the endangered – the ‘at risk’, the threatened, the exposed and the risky from all perspectives. Art & About 2014 will bring hope to the endangered – through artists’ ability to recognise, express and act and our opportunity to immerse, engage and participate – in spaces that belong to us all, says Art & About Sydney Creative Director, Gill Minervini.
