For one day only, Sydney art lenders Artbank are transforming their Rosebery headquarters, which are normally closed to the public, into Artbank Social Club - sort of a one-off art exhibition with astroturf, a pop-up bar and live music from DJ Matt Vaughan. If you're feeling peckish, there'll also be a couple of food trucks around.

You can wander into their showroom and  take a look at their impressive collection (over 10,000 Australian artworks collected over the past 30 years), then hang with the artists themselves in their carpark-turned-outdoor-lounge area.

Artbank is a support program created by the government to promote Australian artists by buying, curating and leasing artworks.

Their headquarters are a bit tricky to find if you haven't been there before, so they've very kindly provided a shuttle bus running every 45 minutes from Chalmers St at Central Station, making stops at Flinders and Oxford Streets along the way. Otherwise, it's about a 15-minute walk from Green Square Station.

Artbank's Social Club runs from 1-5pm.
