Un[contained]: CDQ Supporting Local Artists

Article 18 May 2021

From the 4th to the 6th June 2021 the streets of Kogarah will be alive with the sights and sounds of Un[contained] 2021 – an event that has been organised by the Georges River Council to showcase the work of local and international artists. 

Featuring interactive and quirky art creations, aerial performances, boutique paint and sip experience Pinot and Picasso, international food sensation Knafeh Brothers, Archie Rose Distilling Co. and the iconic Gelato Messina, Un[contained] 2021 will captivate, surprise and amaze Sydneysiders for three days.

Colin Daley Quinn Solicitors is proud to be the principal sponsor of the event and we will be using our involvement in Un[contained] to raise funds for the St George and Sutherland Medical Research Foundation - an organisation that we have supported for many years. Over the course of the three day event, a young local indigenous artist Merindah Funnell will be painting three artworks for CDQ that we will then raffle off to raise money for the Foundation.  This is an incredible opportunity for our clients to get involved in supporting the St George and Sutherland Medical Research Foundation with the chance to win an original artwork along the way.  We hope to see as many of you there at the Festival as possible and encourage you to get on board with our fundraising, while having a great time at this unique celebration of creative talent.

What is Un[contained] 2021?

By situating a series of shipping containers in the centre of Kogarah, the entire community will be encouraged to explore in and around a host of pop-up artworks: challenging the ideas of what ‘art’ is, as it breaks free of traditional gallery space and takes over the streets.

Un[contained] will bring together large-scale art installations and small discoverable artworks, allowing visitors to uncover incidental art experiences and immersive activities involving performance, sound, light and colour.  It will also feature an exciting selection of music, food and wine, and promises to be an incredible weekend of celebration and creativity.

“Colin Daley Quinn Solicitors have been a proud and active member of the Kogarah business community since 1938 and we are thrilled to be able to sponsor Un[contained] and give back to our community in such an exciting and unique way.   I look forward to celebrating the commitment and talent of all the wonderful Artists involved" said Geraldine Daley AM, CDQ Director.

Un[contained] will be an accessible event, inviting people from all walks of life across all abilities to take part in a celebration of our City’s creativity. 

Other event sponsors include St George Bank and the St George Private Hospital, and CDQ staff will be there across the weekend to welcome visitors and lend their support to a very worthy cause.

Please join us at this important community initiative and support our local artists as they showcase their work!
