Creative space Commune is launching Our Hood, a massive new monthly precinct night that brings culture, art and music together with wellness, maker markets and food stalls. It all kicks off on Wednesday, April 25 from 5 to 10pm, and will run on the last Wednesday of each month going forward.
With the aim of bringing the neighbourhood together, the evenings provide a collaborative outlet and meeting space for the community. The launch event will see FBi Radio present live performances from audio visual artist Sampology, local rap-poet Kimchi Princi and electric rap duo Slim set. Alongside the music, the workshop will become home to a large-scale exhibition by painter Jess Cochrane, with 10 percent of art sale profits donated to The Rough Period women's charity.
On the culture side, they've also got Tent Talks, which will focus on social justice and plant-based health, and a hatha yoga class that'll include a live set by DJ James Mack. Yoga will be followed by a therapeutic workshop, run by award-winning performing arts educator Lily Balatincz.
Sydney Vegan Market has curated the food offering and maker stalls, and the bar features the likes of Young Henrys, Archie Rose and Urban Winery Sydney. All events are also dog and family friendly, so it's really a catch-all kind of event.
