This month the Pitt Street ALIVE festival, which is taking place in the pedestrianised space between Market Street and King Street, will attempt to reinvigorate Sydney’s urban centres and welcome back visitors to shared spaces.
As part of the festivities three of the Westfield Living Centres; Westfield Sydney, Westfield Chatswood and Westfield Hurstville have the joined the NSW Government’s CBD Revitalisation Program to support local business and encourage local communities to enjoy their CBDs.
Across the two week festival some of the highlights worth checking out include:
“The NSW CBD Revitalisation Program funding allows our Living Centre teams to work alongside and support other community organisations within Sydney, Chatswood and Hurstville to showcase the best of what these CBD areas have to offer,” said Jacqui Waine from Westfield. “We encourage everyone to come along and enjoy the incredible events and experiences we have scheduled throughout the month of April.”
Westfield Sydney will celebrate the iconic Pitt Street Mall with Pitt Street ALIVE – a festival of events and light installations with outdoor seating and recreational spaces introduced to the mall for the first time.
Westfield Chatswood will transform part of its centre into woodlands ‘Into the Woods @ Chatswood’, featuring live entertainment and a large-scale illuminated installation from acclaimed Australian artist, Amanda Parer.
Westfield Hurstville will present the ‘Eggsville Community Art Trail’, inviting the community to discover metre-high, vibrant eggs designed by community and cultural groups from the Georges River area.
