About Art & About

Our city shines in every season, and now Art & About Sydney allows to you celebrate each one with our ongoing program.

After 13 years of a festival-style program that jam-packed one month with temporary public art, we’re committing to a yearlong calendar of creativity.

Some Art & About favourites will remain, but you can expect more art in every corner of Sydney including major projects, intimate exchanges, and thought-provoking exhibitions in unusual spaces throughout the city.

  • Art & About Sydney celebrates our city’s creativity and imagination, with local and international artists bringing their ideas, wit and unique spirit to the spaces we all share.

    Our creative community, and shared celebrations of this creativity, are fundamental to the identity of our city. The City of Sydney has long recognised the importance of fostering an environment where ideas and imagination can flourish through grants, public art programs and the encouragement of finegrain activity.
