1 - 17 November. Main St, Blacktown.
A curated evening of experiences.
From 6pm on Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays.
RIGHT HERE. RIGHT NOW. features performance, installation, music, film and food in a 3.5-hour contemporary place-based experience in the heart of Blacktown.
Across three weekends in November we welcome you to experience a suite of new works developed by local and international artists and presented in Blacktown restaurants and arcades.
Immerse yourself in an aural world of late night phones calls and philosophical musings; be wowed by handwoven trampolines created with the community; hear the rhythm of the suburb in two new percussion compositions; reflect on First People’s stories and the history of place and share fine food with new friends at a local restaurant.
Your hosts for the evening will be the inimitable Kween G and Nancy Denis who will ensure you’re suitably guided through the experience – from the moment you arrive to the time that you leave.
Scroll down for further information on the full program.
We suggest booking early as capacity for this experience is strictly limited.
