Side Walks

Side Walks is back in 2020 with support from the City of Perth. A one-day sprawling adventure of literature and storytelling across Northbridge and Perth City, Side Walks is about celebrating local stories, activating spaces with arts and culture, and moving through the city with friends new and old.

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 many more.

So, save the date! Five free events will be held on Saturday 5 December 2020.

Program to be announced soon.


The inaugural Side Walks was held across Northbridge and the Perth CBD on 5 October 2019. Listen to some of the conversations below!
