EDGE comes to Balmain

EDGE Inner West shines a spotlight on the inner west as the cultural engine of global Sydney with a series of immersive arts programs in sites where creative spaces are clustered.

In the Balmain-Rozelle ward, now called Baludarri (Leather Jacket), EDGE will activate the spine of this heritage heartland with music, mayhem, performance and installation.

Launching on Thursday 21 November, 6-7pm 

The Glass House at Balmain Town Hall will become a hub of entertainment and visual wonder through the works of composer Andree Greenwell – ‘Voice Crossings’, local physical theatre performers ‘No Strings Attached’ and Council artist in residence Sarah Harvie’s illuminated installations.

For this venue to be possible today we must acknowledge Kathleen Hamey a long standing member of the Balmain Association for her role in saving the Glass House at Balmain Town Hall.

Almost single-handedly she raised enough money by having local residents sponsor a tile to convince Leichhardt Council to proceed with the restoration.

The Balmain Watch is participating in the open studio trail taking place over the weekend of 23rd – 24th November 2019, 10am-5pm.

Artist Christeene Britton will be exhibiting her work. All works will be for sale so come and find something unusual for that special gift for the festive season.
