Remember in school how art, music and dance lessons were seamlessly integrated into the compulsory curriculum? We didn't know how lucky we were. All we had to do was rock up to class and various cultural pursuits were handed to us. Although admittedly, getting through maths was a bit of a chore, we were spoiled with easy access to the paintbrush and egg shakers.
Learning a new skill requires a bit more research and effort as we get older, but fortunately the Redfern Community Centre offers an impressive array of classes throughout the week to try your hand at. Join a group singing class on Tuesdays from 5-6pm, stay on for a DJ workshop from 6-9pm, hit a beginner's ballroom class on 9.30am Monday morning, or spend Saturday morning learning about Indigenous art.
Two hour parking applies in the Redfern area, so if you're planning on staying for longer than that, it's worth getting the train. There are a litany of options to choose from, so check the website schedule and get inspired. Unless stated otherwise, they're all free.
