Side Walks

Side Walks is a one-day sprawling adventure of literature and storytelling across Perth City and Northbridge, celebrating local stories, and activating spaces with arts and culture.

This pop-up event builds on the success of Side Walks 2019, where we were joined by the likes of Janet Carter, David Whish-Wilson, Lisa Longman, Tinashe Jakwa, Sisonke Msimang, Ron Bradfield Jr, and more.

In 2020, we are joined by Chris Lin, Zoe Bradfield, Rashida Murphy, Saadia Ahmed, Rafael Gonzalez, Sarah McNeil, and many more.


THANK YOU
