Highlights from Artweek and Late Night Art in the city centre

News story
Tuesday 29 Oct 2019

Artweek in the city centre was a success again in 2019.

From 12 - 20 October, city centre streets, laneways and public spaces were transformed  with spectacular installations and artworks. 

A brand new art market took place on High Street, food trucks took over Khartoum Place for Late Night Art, galleries extended their opening hours and the heart of the city was a hub of activity celebrating all things art. 

Check out the gallery below to see some of the highlights of Artweek 2019.
