From September 2018 to March 2019, Freespace Happening – our free outdoor music and arts event – returns every second weekend of each month with music, dance, literature-themed activities, a handicraft market and a rich variety of creative workshops for everyone to enjoy.
This year, after three years in the Nursery Park, Freespace Happening is setting down new roots in its permanent home, the Art Park. To mark our new start, we want you to help us find new ways to create a rich and stimulating space for old friends, new friends, family, neighbours and strangers.
Taking “Stories of our space” as our theme, this season of Freespace Happening offers activities designed to inspire a new appreciation of our surroundings and fresh perspectives on our connections with the city’s vibrant mix of communities, its natural environment and its diverse plant and wildlife. So let’s come together and share our stories. Join us, and help us shape an open, creative, resourceful space for future generations.
Upcoming Freespace Happening events:
8–9 September 2018 (Saturday & Sunday)
