Spring into Surry Hills and The Surry Hills Festival programs are an opportunity to profile your creative work to new audiences. Plus, experience the profile and networks gained through this free public program.

Themed Spring into Surry Hills, this year kicks off from 13 September with a series of activations in Ward Park, Devonshire and surrounds. Celebrating founding of SHNCs during the era of Flower Power (late 1960s/70s), SHNC’s role in connecting communities, seeding opportunities for locals and creatives to flourish.

Our programs present bold, inspiring and engaging works for stages, walls, lanes, shopfronts and pop up spaces across event sites, in local businesses and venues. With many works celebrating Surry Hills stories, community and heritage, spring, flower power and people power themes.

Selected creatives are working with Festival producers and community to overlay Devonshire Street and surrounds with a trail of vibrant and engaging installations transforming the heart of Surry Hills into a network of kaboom inspiration and discovery… for the Spring into Surry Hills initiative, running over ten days, 13 to 23 September.

On Saturday 22 September, Surry Hills Festival will culminate in a fantastic spring celebration with great live music, interactive arts, creative trail tours, markets and loads more.
