Art in unusual places

Reshaping and rethinking city spaces

Art & About Sydney celebrates our city’s creativity and imagination. Local and international artists bring 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 fine grain activity.

Every year, the City seeks expressions of interest to create new Art & About works. The opportunity is open to anyone with a big idea that will create a moment of surprise and delight in the urban space.

After 13 years of a month-long festival, Art & About is now a year-long calendar of projects.

You can expect art in any corner of our city, at any time, including major installations, intimate exchanges, and thought-provoking exhibitions in unusual spaces.
