Hi Artists (If you’re not an artist but know one, please forward the invitation),
We’ve managed to negotiate a better deal with Marricville Council for the Marrickville Festival.
It’s now fee, and also much easier. Here’s the deal:

Illawarra Rd (near ESP Gallery) is going to be a specific art quarter for the festival.
We’ve got some local press to run a story on the “art lane”, so there should be loads of interested people.
Council has now agreed to supply a table, a space on the footpath and the insurance
for free! The only catch is that you can’t handle art sales, these will be done by ESP
(also for free – no commission). The tables are for art display only.
We are suggesting that artists share a table, so if you would like to
send us your information as a pair/group, please keep it as one email
with the following info:

Name(s):
Contact Details:
Artwork/medium:

The Marrickville Festival is Sunday 24 October, 11 – 5pm –
so we need your details by next Wednesday (20 October) if you want to be
part of it.
Thanks,
ESP

It is with pleasure we announce the inaugural Oxford Arts Festival scheduled for October 2010.
This ten day festival is designed to highlight the unique historical & cultural quarter of
Oxford Street and Taylor Square and intends to involve the
businesses & venues in this distinctly creative precinct.
The Oxford Festival calendar will feature many events in the local area
including an outdoor art exhibition incorporating an ART PRIZE near the
National Art School in Forbes Street, , GALLERY WALKS through the many
local galleries, FASHION PARADES highlighting local designers,
POETRY READINGS in local book shops, LIVE MUSIC in local bars, + COMEDY,
culminating with a HALLOWEEN BALL as the
grand finale.
The Oxford Art Festival dates are set for the 19th of October until the
30th of October in conjunction with the City of Sydney’s Art & About Festival
and is an event to be place officially on the annual arts calendar.
Why a festival in this wonderful area does not exist already is a quandary.
It is obviously crying out to happen & we are very excited to instigate this
fantastic event & involve all the local businesses, arts institutions, arts
practitioners & local residents to show the broader community how much this area has to offer.
