Culture Guide :: Local Art, Good Greed and Village Beer
October 14th 2013
It’s hard to know what to do after work sometimes… when you’ve got The Z Factor and Please Date My Horribly Awkward Son doubling up on TV, how could you possibly consider heading back outside?! Luckily, we’re keeping our eyes out to bring you the best, brightest, and usually cheapest stuff on the Sydney arts and culture scene.
So when the lure of comfortable pants and reality TV threatens to maroon you on the shores of mediocrity, FBi’s culture guide has got you sorted…
Mon 14th :: Cure Monday-itis with wine, food & Charlie Sheen
Beresford Summer Sessions are back and every Monday night during October you can catch a classic film in their courtyard. Tonight you can see Charlie Sheen winning in Wall Street.
WHERE: Beresford Courtyard, 354 Bourke St Surry Hills
WHEN: Tonight 7.30pm
HOW MUCH: $15 for pasta, wine & movie
Tues 15th :: Talk, think and eat at Govindas
Food scarcity and hunger are not things we face all too often in Australia, what with Woolies and Coles pushing prices down and vying for loyalty with overstocked shelves. They are, however, the daily reality of a huge proportion of the world’s population living at or below the poverty line.
This World Food Day head to Govindas, Darlinghurst’s veggie restaurant cum boutique cinema where for a measly $10 you’ll get fed, watch a film about what hunger really means and meet the people behind it.
WHAT: World Food Day
WHEN: Tuesday, 6.45pm
HOW MUCH: $10 (includes a feed)
Wed 16th :: Escape early for peep shows, pop-up cinemas and workshops
… And heaps more. Who would have thought hump day could have so much to offer? The last week of the Art & About special of Escape Early on Wednesdays gets you out of work (or just off your arse) to find film, art, music and design on the streets of Sydney’s East.
WHERE: Around Sydney’s Eastern suburbs
WHEN: Wednesday 16th Otober
HOW MUCH: FREE!
Thurs 17th :: Picture Redfern in a new light
Three visual artists from Redfern Artists Group – Jo Tracy, Karin Hasse and Julie Doye – use painting, sculpture, photography and digital media to explore their relationship with Redfern, alongside performances by Dorothy Johnson and spoken word legend Jess Cook.
WHAT: Local Product
WHEN: Thursday 17th October 6pm (running until 27th October)
HOW MUCH: FREE!
‘Joe’s Hardware’ by Jo Tracey
