Inner West Council’s EDGE Festival is about celebrating and supporting the artists and creatives of the Inner West. EDGE stands for ‘Ecologically Distinct and Globally Endangered’.
The Festival has been designed to celebrate Inner West communities, but to also draw attention to how fragile is the creative ecosystem of the area.
Over two weekends in August, EDGE Sydenham will see the streets of Marrickville come alive – with creative spaces opening up for tours and more, creative trails, live music and loads of parties.
Labour of Love will add to the atmosphere with a series of projections happening in and around the streets.
Linked to these artworks are a series of vox-pops with local creatives, who share stories about their own creative journeys and the spaces that support their work.
Thanks to Inner West Council for supporting this work.
Thanks also to Maria Popova of Brainpickings for the Mary Oliver quote. You can read more about the poet Mary Oliver here.
