SITEWORKS WEEKEND 3 | Saturday 28 & Sunday 29 January 2023

Sydney Festival comes to Bundanon. Join us for a weekend of performances, workshops and talks.

This weekend is also the one-year anniversary of the opening of Bundanon’s Art Museum and the Bridge for Creative Learning. As part of the celebrations, free face painting is available on Saturday and Sunday.

Siteworks 2022: From a deep valley is a series of events that position the artist as a kind of weather balloon, capturing ‘weather reports’ from this place and time. Read more about the Siteworks season (26 November 2022 – 12 March 2023).
