  • Longest Footpath Art Gallery 

    Artist, creatives, schools and community groups partnered with local businesses to use shop front windows as their own gallery space for the first week in October. Each window acted as a gallery DAY or NIGHT to be enjoyed at a time of attendees own choosing. Footpath stickers and ArtWalk posters were located outside each ‘gallery’ location for viewers to discover the creativity from the safety of the footpath.
