Local businesses are actively encouraged to get on board with their own projects and events that the Oxford Arts Festival is designed to promote. This year we have secured a vacant shop, with the support of the City of Sydney, as the Festival HQ. ‘PopUP 58’ is a pop-up gallery located at No. 58 Oxford St, Darlinghurst. It serves as an information centre, a meeting place and as an exhibition space for various events.
