What is ArtWalk?
ArtWalk is a multi-venue cultural event that opens our local art galleries and museums and brings art out of the gallery and onto the streets at night!
Digitally projected artworks will guide the public through a tour to our top arts and cultural locations throughout the Port Macquarie CBD. Over the evening the public will have the opportunity to explore our local collections and discover local artists exhibiting in unconventional spaces. Live art work, music & entertainment in pop-up spaces and businesses around the CBD will provide our local artists with an opportunity to exhibit their artworks.
ArtWalk is a free family friendly community event that encourages the general public to explore, experience and participate in our local arts and cultural aspects in the centre of Port Macquarie. ArtWalk logos and a map will lead the public to participating venues and spaces, encouraging our community to experience our night time economy. ArtWalk maps will be available closer to the date.
