Of all the cult movies, you’d be forgiven if American Psycho wouldn’t be your first…
Canberra’s own COVID-inspired Where You Are festival brought us the local arts and culture we craved during lockdown.
From live-streamed music to innovative theatre, socially-distanced debauchery, dance, art and more, Where You Are Festival has kept Canberra’s arts scene busy and creating in one of it’s toughest years ever.
But before we farewell the festival on Friday 11 September, there’s still plenty to enjoy—both in-person and online. Here’s what to put in your calendar for Where You Are 2020’s final week.
