AN event with artists and funk hip-hop bands will be held in the heart of Wollongong city from today (June 21).
The pop-up space will be at the corner of Crown Street and Crown Lane and will feature work by street artists, painters, illustrators, photographers and designers. The pop-up will also feature music by talented band, True Vibe Nation.
“This small space in the city centre will showcase numerous artists and performers during this brief pop-up,” Jenny Thompson, Manager Community Cultural and Library Services said.
“It’s a way we can encourage more active and enjoyable events in the city while supporting our local talented community members. We are hoping that this free event will entice more people to visit the city and view the art or take in a performance.”
The pop-up is free. It will be held on the site of the old Otis Bar on the corner of Crown Street and Crown Lane (226 Crown Street, Wollongong). The opening of the pop-up will be from 6pm.
The site will feature artists, painters, illustrators, photographers and designers who will have works for sale on the opening night as well creating some unique artworks straight on to the walls of the building.
The exhibition will also see a live set from local hip hop band True Vibe Nation as well as some of Wollongong’s and Sydney’s emerging artists such as Syke, Bennett, We Buy Your Kids, Joshua Wiffen, and Danial Kelly.
True Vibe Nation, have been gaining air-play on Triple J as well as various other stations nation-wide and have just completed an extensive national tour of Australia.
