The South Marrickville Art Trail ran from October 2-4, inspired by the recent art trail in St Peters. The Trail encourages local residents, organisations and to create and install local artworks in their front yards and windows. Visitors to the trail are encouraged to walk our local streets, using the special online google map, and experience the wonderful sculptures, paintings, installations and artworks sprinkled throughout our South Marrickville community. The event was especially welcome following the long COVID-19 lockdown and helped build important community connections and showcase the creativity of the community, all in a COVID-19 safe way. Two special little people in my home were thrilled to participate through their day care, and as a parent, I can report that the Art Trail was lots of fun and a great way to get kids engaged with both creativity and community. I warmly thank and congratulate Beth Taylor and Mel Dominguez for coordinating the event, especially given the challenges of organising events during the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown. The Art Trail was a highlight of the past few months and a sign of very good days to come as we lift out of lockdown.
