Open Day celebrates art, food and ecology

Open Day celebrates art, food and ecology Bankstown Arts Centre’s annual Open Day is back, coinciding with this month’s Bankstown Bites Food Festival. No  

Bankstown Arts Centre’s annual Open Day is back, coinciding with this month’s Bankstown Bites Food Festival.

Celebrating all things art, food and ecology, the event will be held from 11am-3pm on Saturday 28 July.

City of Canterbury Bankstown Mayor, Khal Asfour, said this year’s Open Day also coincides with the Arts Centre’s latest exhibition, Thinking Local.

"The exhibition highlights the importance of eco-friendly actions in our local neighbourhoods and, during the Open Day, three Sydney-based artists will be engaging with people to inspire them to make sustainable changes in their own homes," Mayor Asfour said.

One of the artist’s, Basilios Papaioannou, will be running children’s drop-in planting workshops - with a twist.

"Kids will be able to help make a large paper patch-work quilt of the Bankstown CBD and pot up their own seed to take home and grow," Mr Papaioannou said.

"With every pot, kids will draw their dream vegetable garden on whichever ‘patch’ of the city they pick on the day.

"The aim is to get kids thinking about designing veggie gardens, whether it be on rooftops, in an office building or in their backyard. It is very important to teach children about where their food comes from and sustainable practices at a young age."

Other features of the Open Day will be:

  • Interactive art exhibitions;
  • Performances;
  • Drop-in arts activities;
  • Drop-in hula hoop workshops;
  • Music in the courtyard; and
  • Street food photography workshops.

Entry to the Arts Centre is via the front of the building on Dale Parade. Visitors with restricted mobility can utilise all public spaces at the Arts Centre. For more information, call 9707 5400 or visit​openday
