All shapes. All sizes. All types. All abilities. STARE FEST is an arts event for everyone.
STARE FEST is produced by Riverside Theatres’ Beyond the Square, an inclusive creative program uniting arts and disability organisations together to present an exciting two week program of theatre, film, dance, music and art across Parramatta.
Get yourself involved in one of the many free workshops, attend a show, buy some original artwork, see a film but most of all come and STARE!
Adam Hills, Ambassador – Beyond the Square
“STARE FEST is about equality. We are what we are in life, we are not labelled by our disability. We are no different to anyone, we are not always perfect, we are all the same.”
Gerard O’Dwyer – Actor, advocate, Riverside Theatre employee
