Unlocking the Heart of Marrickville
Marrickville Council's Open Marrickville unlocks the talents and creativity of local communities and celebrates our many and varied cultures.
Open Marrickville is now in its second year, and takes the form of a festival – eleven days celebrating multiculturalism through storytelling, music, dance, art, theatre, food, and simply gathering together. These activities are organised by local community groups, schools and community organisations, with support from Marrickville Council through a grants program.
Open Marrickville will take place from Thursday 20 June to Sunday 30 June 2013 in a variety of locations across the Local Government Area.
