Love, Evelyn Markets
White Hat suggests that if you are looking for a quiet Saturday afternoon you could try out the monthly market at the Evelyn Hotel where you will find clothes, handmade thingos random whatnots. You can and shop then buy a drink. On the other hand you might just buy a drink - a beer or a Bloody Mary depending on what you did the night before. Unlike other markets, we're sheltered from the upcoming winter weather. Stalls are cheap.  While you are in he area you will probably want to visit some of the coffee shops in Brunswick Street and maybe call in at the Rose Street Artists Market.

While you are in he area you will probably want to visit some of the coffee shops in Brunswick Street and maybe call in at the Rose Street Artists Market.

Gertrude Street Projection Festival

Commencing in 2007 the Gertrude Street Projection Festival has grown to become  one of inner Melbourne’s most visible and accessible free large scale arts festival. The festival celebrates projection art and lets us see familiar spaces and buildings in new, inspired ways. It’s a collaborative, volunteer effort of artists and traders, residents and community groups all brought together by The Gertrude Projection Association.

For 10 evenings in July and in over 38 sites, the length of Gertrude Street in Fitzroy is illuminated by the visions of talented projections artists for the Gertrude Street Projection Festival. Buildings, laneways, footpaths and tree trunks light up with site-specific, curated projections. The Festival’s diverse arts program celebrates and connects our diverse community.

White Hat can thoroughly recommend the festival as a showcase of the edgy, arty inner suburbs. more info >>
