Sydney’s Inner West “Perfect Match” Street Art Festival 2017
The council of Inner West, Sydney had a good initiative this year to heave the street art in the community by partnering with residents, businesses, and property owners. Surely, Perfect Match would involve a lot of local artists, like bred artist Phibs, odd illustrator Mulga the Artist, renowned Jumboist, and others. From 4-6 August, the festival would be focused in some suburbs in Inner West which are Marrickville, Sydenham, Newtown, and Ashfield. More information about the festival is at the council’s website www.innerwest.nsw.gov.au. However, could this kind of festival promote Sydney as a creative city? Could it be a model for other councils to develop the community through arts? Joining us on the line is Rebecca Lourey to answer our questions.
