The first month of spring brings with it a series of local festivals and events like Bondi’s Festival of the Winds, the popular Surry Hills Festival and Cabramatta Moon Festival. It's also the month of major arts and culture festivals like Underbelly, Sydney Fringe and the Underground Film Festival. Don't forget, it’s Father’s Day on Sunday September 3 and school holidays from September 23. 

September's biggest events


Art from the World

Redfern’s creative studio Work-Shop has joined forces with the Welcome Studio to run a series of new workshops taught by skilled artists who have a refugee background or are currently seeking asylum here in Australia. The Art from the World workshops present a chance for people to connect with and learn from people who’ve brought traditional skills to Australia from other countries around the world. They’re also an opportunity for people with refugee backgrounds to share their culture and knowledge – such as storytelling traditions from Sierra Leone, or the art of political cartooning from Syria and Jordan.
