Inaugural Un[contained] festival brings Kogarah streets to life

Belgrave Street in Kogarah was transformed into an interactive food, wine, music and art space over the weekend.

The inaugural Un[contained] festival ran from Friday to Saturday, bringing a host of interactive and mesmerising displays to life.

The festival featured never-before-seen interactive and quirky art creations, a boutique paint and sip experience, aerial dances and more.

Local and international artists unveiled their latest works, while attendees enjoyed quality food and interactive entertainment.

Georges River mayor Kevin Greene said the new festival surprised and delighted residents and visitors.

"The festival breaks art free of a traditional gallery space and sees it take over the streets," he said.

"Bringing together large-scale installations with small discoverable artworks, our community will uncover incidental art experiences, and immersive activities involving performance, sound, light and colour."

Some of the culinary delicacies on offer included Gelato Messina, Knafeh Brothers, Archie Rose Distilling Co. and Pinot and Picasso.

Keila Terencio performed a free-form aerial dance six metres in the air, while ANL designs presented an LED/sculpture mix called Ecosystem, and sensory artist Bliss Cavanagh showed off her new creation called Light Forms.

Light artist Kit Webster and illustrator George Draws a House also featured in the festival.

Un[contained] also ran a Quiet Hour session from 1pm-2pm on Sunday, June 6 with less sound, softer lighting and a smaller crowd.
