We are looking forward to bringing our Art Salon Cafe to the Arts Area at Strawberry Fair. Come along and have a mocktail with us, or a strawberry tea! We have vegan brownies, flapjacks, cakes and vegan tartlets – all lovingly prepared by volunteers and served up by a team of sparkling mermaids – proceeds supporting our work in the community. We have a new illuminated Art Salon sign made by Dan Biggs, plus an Eco Glitter Colour Bath for you to get bathed in colour and glitter. There’s an acoustic jam 12-1pm, facepainting during Kids Disco Hour (1-2pm) – fancy dress welcome, heroes is this year’s theme for the fair! – with DJ Glitterbeardyman, plus the chance to catch the Soapbox Scientists outside for Women In Science Happy Hours – 2pm-5pm, plus we have a call out for tapes to play on our ghettoblaster for Tape Hour (5pm – 6pm) – dig out your tapes.
We also have recyclable Art Graffiti Cups, plus live art from Sadi Soul Arts!
The Arts Area is next to the Kids’ Park and the nearest buildings to us are the houses on North Terrace. We’re in front of them. Look at the link to find your way:
The Eastern Bloco Arts Area is a loose afilliation of activist artists, who through a wide range of mediums, from film, found objects, textiles, painting, site specific, spoken word and combinations of all of the above, highlight and raise awareness of issues surrounding them.
