announcing that RNM will no longer operate at a monthly capacity
We have some news about the markets. We have had a fantastic almost 2 years of Redfern Night Markets and during this time we’ve encountered many memorable moments and forged many fantastic friendships along the way. The market was a project initially created by myself a local resident with the intention to counteract negative publicity and sensationalism that had impacted our social misrepresentation. My vision for this project was to create a positive and inclusive night space showcasing our local creative’s and providing insight to our welcoming, inclusive community of Redfern and Waterloo.
I am officially announcing that RNM will no longer operate at a monthly capacity. The RNM concept will be simplified and move into the direction of producing short term markets and events that focus on cultural, multicultural, diverse and urban concepts. The Redfern Night Market will return in 2017 as an annual event. We’ve had a great time and on behalf of the team, I sincerely want thank you for being part of the RNM movement. It has been a fantastic experience from day one.
Redfern Night Markets is a positive space - highlighting Redfern's creative and individual flair, encouraging local people - local business
RNM offers you live music and stalls from local makers and creators and delicious food from Sydney food trucks and food vendors exhibiting their diverse goods indoors and outdoors.
Visitors can enjoy shopping from people selling arts and crafts, fashion, homewares and jewellery whilst listening to exciting live music. RNM is operated by locals who have done some study, got some skills and are passionate about creating music, arts and cultural events in their community.
We wanted to create a monthly art piece at Redfern Night Markets for voice and community through people and art. Last night was the first installment and it is inspired in support of the West Papua friendship Mural painted by Larrakia elder June Mills as it is facing removal in NT. This is a painting of Free West Papua Campaign leader 'Benny Wenda' painted by Jason 'Kasino' of Butterbeat Records. Please come by and snap and share #freewestpapua and feel free to create your own street art piece where ever you are in the world to support of our brothers and sisters in West Papua. Respect to the Punks for West Papua and the Australia West Papua Association Jason, Thorn, Danielle and PCYC South Sydney for coordinating the support painting. Update - We have paused the monthly repaint due to the significance and power of message for freedom in this painting.
