Blacktown Arts Centre, FBi Radio and MusicNSW present Tracks – A Western Sydney Hip-Hop Project. We’re kicking things off with a free party on Saturday, 3 June 2017, headlined by some of hip-hop’s brightest rising stars.
In March we met with one of our 2017 Creative Residents, Sarah Dahia, to see what she’s been creating at the Main Street Studios as she reconnects with her artistic practice.
Visitors to Blacktown Arts Centre can make an appointment for a free cut, fade or shave by Charles Lomu and the ‘Original 5’ Tuesday-Saturday during the Garage Barbershop exhibition.
During the first week of her studio residency with Blacktown Arts Centre, we met Lorraine Simiana and got an insight into her practice: processes, restrictions and motivations.
If you missed the exhibition at Blacktown Arts Centre, chances are you’ll get to see it again! Montages: The Full Cut, 1999 – 2015 is touring nationally over the next three years thanks to Artspace, Sydney and Museums & Galleries of NSW.
