PARLOUR 25

Kaldor Public Art Projects launches Parlour, a creative new space where art, music, film, performance and hands-on workshops come together to explore and engage with our projects at night.

Each Parlour will be presented in a unique venue, bringing a fresh approach to the Kaldor project artists' work in a variety of stimulating, entertaining and sometimes, surprising, ways.

Join Kaldor Public Art Projects, the University of Technology Sydney School of Design, N, FBi radio, and The Festivalists for Project 25: Parlour celebrating The Dailies, Thomas Demand’s intriguing new installation at the Commercial Travellers’ Association in Martin Place. Come think a little, come drink a little, come stay a while in our Parlour - selected Thursday nights in April.

EACH THURSDAY 5.30 - 9pm
