Weekends are about freedom, exploring and fun... and that's worth writing about.
Come along and Party with the Arty
The TWT Creative Precinct is an exciting initiative involving the conversion of underutilised commercial buildings on Atchison Street, St Leonards, into art galleries, creative retail and space for artists.

This initiative has been made possible through a collaborative relationship between arts organization Brand X and Auswin TWT Developments and has created an opportunity for local artists to practice their craft and offer unique cultural events to the wider community in engaging and authentic ways.

Following the huge success of last year's event which saw over 1,000 locals celebrate the official opening of the precinct, here's another opportunity to join in for an evening of music, live art, food, film and fun that will bring this once quiet street in St Leonard's to life.

This year, female artists will dominate the line-up. From visual artist Jodee Knowles to performers Anita Dooche and Betty Grumble; Retrosweat's Shannon Dooley to sculptor Sofia Lo Bianco and musician Danielle Lamb each will be bringing art to the streets and inviting their audiences to dream big with them in full light, colour and sound.

The program promises to be full and fun and includes:

The unveiling of JODEE KNOWLES' new mural in Atchison Lane
BHENJI RA vogueing workshop and battle @ TWT REHEARSAL SPACE
ANITA DOOCHE & BETTY GRUMBLE performance @ the new underground DIVE BAR
Preview of the new LANEWAY CINEMA
