All venues are either fully or partially accessible. Side Walks is a pop-up style program, meaning some of our venues are not typically utilised for events and may require some audience members to stand. AUSLAN interpreting is available upon request. If you require an AUSLAN interpreter, or have other access needs, please contact us by 20 November on (08) 9328 1442 or info@centreforstories.com


Side Walks would not be possible without the generous support from our sponsors.
