Community Billboard 12th February – 18th February
This weekly community billboard is proudly sponsored by the City of Sydney’s Plan for the future – Sydney 2030 – making our city more green, global and connected.
Come one, come all.
Fair Day’s an out-and-out, full-on fabulous day of fun and adventure where you can chill with a picnic spread, browse the community stalls or kick up your heels and have a dance.
Fair Day 2019 will shine a light on rising LGBTQI music talent who are reshaping the arts and culture landscape and breaking new ground.
Join us at the ANZ Main Stage to discover a mix of queer trailblazers including Mojo Juju and Electric Fields.
Meanwhile, enjoy games in the Sports Village, the deliciousness on offer from the many food trucks, or watch precious pups from across Sydney lapping up the attention at Doggywood. All that and so much more.
Our communities shine bright at Fair Day. Whether you’re young or old, tame or bold, whoever you are, whoever you love, Fair Day is the must-do event which brings us all together.

Wendy McDonald: Quietly
The Koskela Gallery presents Quietly: a body of new landscape works by acclaimed artist Wendy McDonald.
Wendy McDonald paints from her property Thule Lagoon, near the Murray River in southwest NSW. Her work draws from the ecology of the local environment, the ebb and flow of the creeks and rivers and the dramatic changes of the seasons. She is honoured to tell the story of the ephemeral floodplain and the joys of belonging to a small community, through her art.
In Quietly, Wendy has turned to the exceptionally dry conditions of 2018; how living on the lagoon “requires an acceptance and understanding of place in all its guises. If you don’t bend, you may break. We sit here quietly whilst recognising the power of this land and its arid beauty. It embraces us as we must embrace it”.
