Arts & Antiques
Talent and tradition on display...
Gather people together in a place as inspirational as Kiama, and the results are always going to be worth seeing.
For such a geographically small region, our rich and diverse arts scene punches well above its weight – due in no small part to the sheer numbers of talented artists who have taken up residence in this part of the world. This bubbles to the surface in many ways throughout the year – via street art, live music, weekly and monthly gallery exhibitions and a handful of popular annual festivals that continue to grow every year.
Underpinning this is a stunning heritage of Indigenous art and culture – brought to life at various discovery points across the region.
