Side Walks

Side Walks was a dynamic, one-day celebration of storytelling in its various forms held across Northbridge and the Perth CBD on 5 October 2019. Funded by the City of Perth, Side Walks brought together artists, writers, journalists, and poets to present six unique events in venues both usual and unusual.
