The popular Art & About festival will again take over Sydney’s streets from late September, with more highlights revealed on the program this week.

There’s nothing we love more than an old-fashioned block party, and the suburban backyard will come to the centre of Sydney when Martin Place hosts the Quarter Acre Block Party. Meanwhile, the city’s banners will pay homage to the much-loved milk bar, and entries for the Little Sydney Lives competition are now open.

And remember those giant colourful snails from last year? Well, one of the city’s most visible events this time around will be a little more movement-based: Trolleys, a part-dance performance, part-outdoor spectacle featuring street dancers and acrobats making the most of everyday shopping trolleys.

Art & About 2014 takes over Sydney’s streets from Friday September 19 – Sunday October 12.
