City Sessions: Week 3

Celebrate the spirit of design in Canberra as iconic buildings, spaces and public art in the city are brought to life by the award winning Pop Inn wine bar. In 2020, DESIGN Canberra will locate our vibrant CBD programs at Monaro Mall’s iconic City Walk entry, home to Frank Hinder’s beautiful installation underneath the imposing slim pillars which have stood the test of time. The Monaro Mall entry is an inspiring expression of the vision of our early planners, designers and artists. It is a timely reminder of our contemporary shared responsibility to preserve and appreciate our rich design history, especially from the mid-century.

Sit back, relax and take in live music from Scoob McGoon against the backdrop of iconic mid-century design and architecture, complimented by an exciting contemporary art installation by Canberra artist Hannah Quinlivan and a Graphic Intervention ground mural by fellow Canberra artist Hannah Gason.

Scoob McGoon is a tender and silly singer and songwriter who makes folk rock music. They operate on Ngunnawal land. McGoon released their first EP late last year with their brother, Miles McLaughlin (Ghost Boy). The Scoob EP has seen the release of songs written from 2014-2019, that McGoon is glad to finally share with the world.

City Sessions are weather-dependent events. Cancellations will be posted on the website and Facebook.

Selected CBD festival programs have been made possible with support from the ACT Government and the City Renewal Authority.
