Mayor of Marrickville addresses 2042: Art on the Street

Marrickville Council is pleased to have worked with Inner West Cultural Services for this unique event, 2042: art on the street. Congratulations to Inner West Cultural Services and all the volunteers that have made this event such a success.

I believe that it is the people of Newtown and its surrounding suburbs that make the Marrickville area the best place to live in Sydney. An event like this, where our community are invited to come together and transform Newtown Square into a wonderful public artwork will demonstrate to the rest of Sydney who we are and what is important to us.

To our creative community, whether you are a painter, dancer, musician, writer or sculptor and more, we thank you for making our area the centre of Sydney’s cultural activity.

Funding 2042: art on the street is just one of Marrickville Council’s initiatives that brings the arts to our community. We also have the Chrissie Cotter Gallery for local artists to host exhibitions, an artist residency program, arts grants, a street art program and we engage many local musicians and performers at our cultural and street festivals.

Have a great weekend.

Mayor of Marrickville
