Connect, Create, Celebrate

Penrith City Council and the Museum of Contemporary Art invite the community to join the free activities in Wainwright Park, Kingswood on Sunday 5 December from 2pm.

Pick up an artisanal item from local creatives at a variety of stalls, enjoy free art activities, tasty treats and live music at a family friendly afternoon in the heart of Kingswood.

Chill out to the sounds of Van Sereno (2pm-4pm) who creates funky looped grooves and joyful children’s songs, followed by singer-songwriter Divinia Jean (5pm-7pm) and her Jazz-infused folk sounds. From 4pm artist Linda Brescia and writer Felicity Castagna will discuss the creative process behind the Skirts project among the artworks in Wainwright Park.

Penrith Council’s General Manager, Warwick Winn, said the Skirts Summer Stalls event was a great way to enjoy local art and inspiring creatives on a casual Sunday afternoon with friends and family.

“The relaxed family environment makes this event one to attend on the first Sunday of summer,” Mr Winn said.

“The local Kingswood community have really enjoyed the inspiring artworks that are in Wainwright Park, and this event allows the community to come together to connect with each other, create their own art and celebrate community.

“Bring a picnic blanket, enjoy some of the food offerings, relax to great live music and pick up some special gifts for family and friends for Christmas.”

Skirts Summer Stalls is a celebration of community spirit and creativity as part of Skirts, a series of artworks by Western Sydney-based artist Linda Brescia displayed in Wainwright Park.

Skirts is part of a C3West program which examined issues around women’s community safety and connection in Kingswood.

Skirts Summer Stalls is a COVID-safe event and being held in accordance with NSW Health Guidelines. Attendance at this event is subject to capacity limits, and QR check-in upon entry.
