Last weekend! EDGE 2021: Art Camp on the GreenWay until 9 May

Monday 3 May 2021

Don’t miss the free tours, exhibitions, performances and workshops at the last weekend of EDGE 2021 Art Camp on the GreenWay, a 24-day onsite Artist in Residence project.

Inner West Council Arts Projects & Partnership Leader Victoria Johnstone said Council was fuelling the re-emergence of Sydney’s creative sector with EDGE GreenWay.

“In response to the impacts of COVID-19, we are putting the Inner West creative community front and centre amidst our precious natural environment and transforming the GreenWay into temporary residency spaces in pop-up shipping containers, beneath bridges and in natural nooks.”

This weekend is the last opportunity to take advantage of this dynamic, immersive arts hub on the banks of Iron Cove Bay at Lilyfield. Bring a picnic and celebrate our local artists.
