Side Walks is an annual pop-up storytelling, readings, poetry and literature festival run by Centre for Stories in unique venues across Perth and Northbridge.
Back for the third time round, Side Walks 2021 is programmed around the theme of still: still here, still strong, still like the light on water, still and yet. Side Walks theme of still is about taking a moment to reflect on where we are, to embrace community here, to remain and become still no matter what the future holds.
Side Walks is a program of seven events. Six of the events are divided into two parallel blocks – the City Block and the Northbridge Block. These blocks run at the same time, so you can only choose one! The final event will bring both blocks together for a special finale, followed by the Side Walks afterparty.
Side Walks: City Block commences at the Cathedral with Still, I Rise, a bilingual poetry reading with local poets sharing original work in response to Maya Angelou’s esteemed poem of the same name.
