Artist workspace, sometime venue and art scene mainstay Bill and George is a minor institution and elder member of a generation of art spaces that predate the rush to fill Marrickville warehouses. Having just come out of its five year lease to face, the space faces rising rents that have left it saying farewell to its Redfern digs and shutting down. While other new local spaces in the area will hopefully keep Redfern friendly to the art types, Bill and George will still be a hard act to follow.

To say goodbye Redfern, its friends and itself it's holding one final Farewell Party in the former workspace before closing up for the last time. The musical acts announced so far include the Brutal Poodles, LukeSnarl and Sven Simulacrum.
