Dear Curious Folk,

Food is shared. New friendships formed. Isn't that what life's about?

Meet+Eat is a collection of beautifully crafted documentary films celebrating the rich cultural lives of Western Sydney residents. Two relative strangers share a meal and exchange stories of migration, displacement and identity.

Sydneysiders, you are invited to join us in celebrating food and friendship at the Meet+Eat NSW Film Premiere. This free event will feature film screenings, food tastings and a Q&A session!

If you're not in Sydney, fear not: the series will launch online at the end of March.
We are saying goodbye to our Community Director, Elias Nohra, after nine gobsmacking years at CuriousWorks. What can we say? He's been with us since the beginning - and his wild imagination, capacity for humour in the most difficult of situations, unyielding commitment to community and glorious creative abilities have become part of the DNA of Everything Curious. Elias is off to pursue more personal artistic adventures and we know we'll be first in line for whatever he creates next. He will, of course, remain part of the Curious Family - we'll make sure of that!

Take a trip down nostalgia lane with us and relive the first major project Elias ever led at CuriousWorks - Refill at Miller Technology High School.

Inpatient is a short film exploring issues of mental health, made by participants in a mental health recovery group, with the support of St Vincent’s Hospital Darlinghurst. Catch the film as well as the behind the scenes documentary to get an insight into our community filmmaking process.

Inpatient was facilitated by CuriousWorks as part of our Services Program - get in touch with us to learn more about how we can work with you and your community, we'd love to hear from you!.

We're thrilled to announce that we're now casting for our first feature film - Rizzy.

Set in Western Sydney in 2001, Rizzy tests the boundaries of mateship and forgiveness between a group of kids trying to navigate their way into adulthood.

We're particularly interested in those that can relate to the journey of growing up in a place like Western Sydney. Both professional actors and newcomers with talent are encouraged to get in touch.

A Counting and Cracking of Heads, Shakthi's epic new play about Australian - Sri Lankan family over four generations, recently had a public reading with Melbourne Theatre Company. Audiences loved it. Here are some images from the rehearsals, of actors being all actor-ly.
As if we didn't have enough to do in Melbourne, The Other Journey also toured there recently, as part of the Spectres of Evaluation Conference at Footscray Community Arts Centre. Here's some more photo bling from this beautiful outdoor artwork.
