Live & Local

CULTR03643 - Live and Local - SocialMedia Tile - v01-1.jpg

Performers in our streets and open spaces to discover and enjoy while you are out and about.

Live & Local is a celebration of the local; our creatives, artists musicians, and performers, playing in public outdoor spaces and retail precincts across the city.

Pop-up performances will occur across a range of locations, with more than 20 sites across the city.  They will take place on Fridays between 5pm and 7pm and on Saturdays between 11am and 4pm. Look out for decals that will indicate a performance site and enjoy Live & Local. This is a program that is meant to be enjoyed serendipitously and casually. Sites are not set up with stages or audience seating - or dancefloors - but don’t let that stop you!

Live & Local, supporting local creatives through Council’s COVID-19 Community Support Package.
