FIB has the guide on the most happening events in town for Sydney locals.
Sculpture by the Sea
Who doesn’t love some art for their weekends? To top it all off, who would pass up on admiring some art by the water over the weekend? Whether it be for a stroll with your partner or friends or a weekend out with your family, Sculpture by the Sea is coming back for the 22nd time with its abstract exhibition and it never fails to impress. Every year, there are more than hundreds of entries made for this exhibition and the best of the best get selected by the curatorial panel for the displays from Bondi to all the way to Tamarama. Other than the exhibition, if you love wandering around by the water and soaking in some nature from the hectic concrete jungle life, then the walk from Bondi to Tamarama will be a good and a relaxing one.
Although the best times to attend this would be around 2-3 PM in your afternoons as it can get pretty crowded. Moreover, with the weather finally warming up and catching the breeze outside would be ideal and calming.
Heaps Gay Shift Resurrection
Two floors, a gazillion artists and a resurrection ceremony! Your city isn’t dead! With the combination of music, performances and roaming art and stunning visuals, the rebirth of the iconic venue in Oxford Street happened; and not just that, but in a more welcoming way with “Universal”- a place for queers, a place for all people.
With performances from South Africa’s Shumba and Sydney’s FLORIAN, the place was most definitely revived, and the venue is now set on having its weekly event, Satori, which will feature capturing performances from live music to drag. These nights will certainly be the nights you will never forget.
Plants With Bite
The bizarre telling of the world’s carnivorous plants has started from the 1st of October. These plants are amongst some of the deadliest plants in the world and yet they truly are a miracle of evolution with the sun, soil, sky and viciousness they grow up with.
At this display of the flora, you will catch the Venus Flytrap and you will even get to see the others such as, “pitfall”, “flypaper” and “bladder”. Curated by horticulturalists at The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, this is the largest vertical floral wall in the southern hemisphere. Entry for the event is free, so use this opportunity to catch the exhibition of the carnivorous greenery.
