heart of annandale Annual Art Exhibition

Heart of Annandale is a community art exhibition for the Inner West. It celebrates artistic conversations about our suburbs, providing a platform for all community members to participate. The exhibition includes musical performances, creative workshops, and social activities designed to enhance community interaction, inclusivity and promote local talent.
Heart of Annandale is completely run by the members of Village Church Annandale and is supported by the Inner West Council and generous local businesses.

2021 Theme: 'Adapt'

Each year, Heart of Annandale has an exhibition theme to help springboard and focus our creative energies and provoke thought and conversation about our lives in the Inner West.

This year's theme allows us to consider some of the ways we've adapted to new circumstances and done things differently, particularly in the face of challenges. But it doesn't just have to be about human experience - you could consider physical or natural environments, industry or ideology. Perhaps you'd just like to delve into some good old adaptation - take the theme where you will!

Entries Close: 6pm Friday 2 July
Exhibition Open: 10-25 July, 12-5pm every day
Opening Night: Friday 9 July, 6-8pm
Closing Celebration: Saturday 24 July, 6-8pm

people in hallAnnandale Bag Making Bee by Boomerang Bags Sydney Inner West

We just celebrated our fourth year and it seems that we have now got our mojo back after a quiet 2020.
Can you believe we have made 8780 bags in those four years. It's amazing and I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who has played a role in helping us make such a big impact on the circulation of plastic bags in Sydney.
We are holding our regular Bees on the second Sunday of every month (including this Sunday 16 May) and we would really love you to be part of these. 1-5pm at the Annandale Neighbourhood Centre.
We have a monthly stall at the Summer Hill Flour markets.
We have our bags at:
Village Wholefoods n Marrickville
Alfalfa House in Newtown
Tart Sisters in Ashfield
Noff shops all over Sydney
It is so pleasing to hear that our bags are still popular but we have limited supplies at the current time. To keep up with the demand we really need more helpers. If you are unable or not keen to come to the Sunday Bees please get in touch as we can arrange for home work to be delivered.
We have plans to branch out into a range of other sustainable items which will reduce the need for plastic - so far we have been trialling reusable make up wipes and bunting for parties.
If you are keen to reengage with this important work then please get in touch (rachel powell < boomerangbagssydneyinnerwest @ > no spaces in email address!) or pop along on Sunday.
