Artists invited to take part in 2021 Creative Trails

Inner West Council

Applications are invited from studios, galleries and artist-run initiatives (ARIs) for Midjuburi (Marrickville ward) Creative Trails weekend on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 August 2021.

Midjuburi Creative Trails will be held in conjunction with EDGE Sydenham.

Applications from creative spaces located in Tempe, Sydenham, Marrickville, St Peters and Dulwich Hill are now invited.

Creative Trails is an opportunity for the public to engage with the thriving Inner West independent arts scene, to meet local artists and makers, view art in progress and purchase art at studio prices.

Hundreds of people spend the weekend discovering art in hidden artists’ studios, independent galleries and quirky artist run initiatives, and taking part in various workshops.

“We opened up our studios at Mess with it:Project Space (now Little Majestic) for the 2019 Trail,” said Bettina Kaiser.

“We had two busy days of walk-though public in our studios.

“Since we also have a lot of performing artists and musicians in our studio, we had live music and roving performers in the afternoons and evenings as well.

“I did not really know what to expect, this was my first Creative Trail, but we had quite a steady stream of visitors and many engaging questions and comments.

“And so many people mentioned how they loved the trail and how astounded they were to find out all the creative goings-on in this rather industrial area of Marrickville/Sydenham,” Bettina said.

“It was really rewarding for me as an artist and for us as a studio.”

Midjuburi Creative Trails applications close at midday Monday 7 June.
