Sydney East Art Walk
Explore, "get your art on...." discover East Sydney's art vibe in
Join Stanley Street Gallery and 12 local galleries for the Sydney East art walk.
For the duration of the Sydney East Art Walk Stanley Street Gallery will be hosting a performance by Jackson Farley in conjunction with his current exhibition “Self conscious kev and other friends” (pictured; The ‘Gimp Alliance League of Pluralistic and Open Masculinity’ (GALPOM) offers a solution to Kevs woes! Sacrifice autonomy! Sacrifice privilege! Sacrifice power! Get off on getting told what to do! Get off your podium and get gimp! This is clearly the only reasonable and logical way masculinity can survive into the future.*
*At least, until we dismantle the system of patriarchal oppression and build a new generation of gimp suit free, non-dickheads who are emotionally stable, more inclusive and less sad all the time.” Jackson Farley)

Guide Dogs puppies come to the Marly
Celebrating National Puppy Day the right way!
Clear your schedule. You won’t want to be anywhere else for National Puppy Day. The Marly is once again teaming up with Guide Dogs NSW/ACT to bring some Guide Dog puppies out for a day of fundraising, cuddles and awwwws.
The pups will be out in the beer garden waiting for you to come and say g’day. Bringing your own 4-legged friends is also strongly encouraged! Our photographer on the day will take family photos for fur families, with matching outfits for you and your doggos available! On top of that we’ll have a backyard barbecue, a Wayward Brewing Karma Keg and a pop-up stall by Lilly’s Pawtisserie on the day all helping to raise funds for Guide Dogs NSW/ACT.
In March, we’ll also have tap and donate stations available at our public bar to help raise funds and awareness for Guide Dogs NSW/ACT. Every donation goes a long way to helping train a dog in the journey to becoming a guide, service or therapy dog.
Whether you need a cuddly study break, don’t have a dog yourself or just can’t resist puppers in general, the Marly has you covered. We’ll see you on National Puppy Day!
Where: 145 King St, Newtown NSW 2042, Australia

Subverting the Intolerable Narrative
Subverting the Intolerable Narrative is an exhibition that explores the multiple ways that beauty and gentle aesthetics can be employed to address traumatic events or intolerable narratives that are embedded within familial histories.
The exhibition is a curatorial project between Australian writer and curator Nikita Holcombe with Taiwanese Australian artist Stella Chen, Kamilaroi/Gamillaraay artist Dennis Golding Weatherall, Southern Arrernte, Kaytetye and Ammatyerre nations artist Carmen Glynn-Braun, Cambodian Australian artist Linda Sok and Biri artist Kirra Weingarth.
The selected artworks stem from the artist’s position within Australia and their individual exploration the intergenerational effects of trauma through the lens of their indigenous and migrant perspectives. The artists will actively engage with each other’s narratives to present confronting histories and traumatic events through a range of varied aesthetic strategies.

When: Wednesday 20 March to Sunday 24 March from 10am to 5.30pm
