Fairfield City Museum & Gallery will host a series of art programs this month as an extension to two current exhibitions on show – Travelling Sounds, and Here: After, closing on 19 June and 26 June respectively.

Western Sydney based creative practitioners will come together to produce, develop and present the programs during June, and everyone is encouraged to participate.

“We are so fortunate that our community is home to such a range of cultures, making our creative output unique,” Fairfield City Mayor Frank Carbone said.

“Fairfield City Museum & Gallery has always curated creative and innovative programs that respond to our community’s cultural diversity, offering a unique experience outside of a traditional gallery space.

“If you are after a good dose of culture and creativity I encourage you to explore what the gallery has on offer.”
