Culture Guide: 13-19 July

July 12th 2020

In light of mass event cancellations due to the COVID-19 crisis, Culture Guide as you know it is on a temporary hiatus.

Creative communities across the country are facing devastating loss and uncertainty in this time, but we’ll continue to do the work to support a vibrant and creative Sydney. That means looking into new and innovative ways to bring arts & culture content to you, inviting artists to create exclusive content, and continuing to provide a platform for emerging culture.

In the meantime, keep scrolling for activities you can enjoy whether you’re staying home or venturing out as Sydney arts and culture gets back on its feet and reopens its doors.

To keep bringing you the best of Sydney now and into the future, FBi needs your support. Right now, things might feel beyond your control but you can help secure a bright future for Sydney music, arts & culture. Click here to become a supporter or make a donation to FBi Radio.
