Thursday 8 October 2020- 5.30pm

ArtWalk 2020 has a NEW DATE - Thursday 8 October 2020 - and it will deliver bigger and better than ever!

In the Term 3 NSW school holidays, ArtWalk 2020 will encourage everyone to look to the skies with an event theme of Constellations: exploring the concepts of celestial spheres, objects and phenomena and their influence on those bound to earth.

The range of programs offered for locals and visitors alike to get involved will still include:

  • Artists located in Businesses within the CBD
  • Expressions of interest for creating art in Public Spaces
  • Artist markets located on Town Square
  • Creative satellite events in locations around the region
  • Volunteering on the night

If you're an artist, performer, musician, venue or volunteer wanting to be a part of ArtWalk 2020, application forms will be available from the first week of July as a link on this page to ArtWalk’s 'Get Involved' section. Alternatively, if you wish to register your interest to participate then please email artwalk@pmhc.nsw.gov.au or follow Facebook.com/artwalkpmq or Instagram #artwalkpmq for updates. 

What is ArtWalk?

ArtWalk is an edgy, delightful and surprising night of discovery, so come and find out why this FREE evening is fast becoming one of the most popular events on the mid-north coast, with over 14,000 in attendance in 2019.

The Port Macquarie CBD shrugs off its daytime clothes and emerges as a stage for artists, performers and musicians who are pushing the boundaries and getting, well, a little interactive!  Don't be scared though, it's all above board (we think) and the key to enjoying yourself is to get in there and be a part of it. 

Wander the streets, meet the artists, mingle with friendly folk, chat, discover, listen, wonder, eat, drink and be merry. ArtWalk illuminates secret, unassuming and unexpected spaces with free pop up performances, artistic interventions and creative installations.

There are also plenty of satellite events being planned in the lead-up to ArtWalk, so like our Facebook  page for updates.
