Side Walks is back for 2021 and we’re incredibly excited to share this fun and vibrant sprawling program with you.

This annual pop-up storytelling, literature and ideas festival will take you to unique venues across Perth and Northbridge. Side Walks is a curated whirlwind of talks, performances and readings with a special emphasis on homegrown talent.

This year, we’re celebrating stillness: still here, still strong, still like the light on water, still and yet. Side Walks’ theme of still is about taking a moment to reflect on where we are, to embrace community here, to remain and become still no matter what the future holds.

Side Walks is a program of seven events. Six of the events are divided into two parallel blocks – the City Block and the Northbridge Block (Auslan interpreted). These blocks run at the same time, so you can only choose one! The seventh event will bring both blocks together for a special finale, followed by an afterparty.

Side Walks has been made possible with funding from the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, Centre for Stories’ Founders Circle, Aspen Corporate Financial Planning, and Rayner Real Estate.
