Art On The Wall presents
“WISH YOU WERE HERE!”
The Wall presents a show of imagined trips and travels! We’ve asked photographers to contribute a happy snap from their previous holidays, and then sent the images on to writers. The writers treated the images as postcards, and wrote out their fantasy trips from these exotic and unexplained locations. On Wednesday Oct the 26th, we’re displaying the results.

Even Books is a regular night that combines literature, music, art, theatre and booze to be one of the most unusual book clubs around. Each night is themed around a different book, and last week’s theme was Miranda July’s collection of short stories, “No-one Belongs Here More Than You“.
The vibe was kinda like a chilled house party, with some activities and live music thrown in.
There were interactive projects, based on Miranda’s writing and web art.
The “positive message table”.
Sui Zhen even made a diorama inspired by Miranda July, especially for the night.
The winners of the inaugural SMAC Awards (Sydney Music, Arts & Culture) were unveiled to the world on sunday night, at a party held down at the Sydney Opera House.
