Field Trip is a series of community-led walking tours in Marrickville and Sydenham. We are learning about the area’s industrial, infrastructural and creative spaces, as well as engaging people in a conversation about the future of the neighbourhood.
Because this is a knowledge sharing project as well as a series of events, we are organising relevant documents here on the Frontyard wiki. Please feel free to add and comment to what we have started here.
- Made in Marrickville: Enterprise and cluster dynamics at the creative industries -manufacturing interface, Carrington Road precinct
- Urban Cultural Policy and the Changing Dynamics of Cultural Production

We organised an event as part of the Inner West Open Studio Trail on March 18, 2018, to explore community visions for Marrickville 2028. Geographer Craig Lyons spoke about the audit of cluster dynamics on Carrington Road. Local historian Ian Hoskins was the guest speaker from Save Marrickville Action Group. Here is a pdf of Ian's presentation. Think of the pdf as a prompt to go for a local character walk in Marrickville. There are some photos of the event here.
Field Trip is supported by an Inner West Council Arts and Culture grant. The grant is led by Craig Lyons.
