Canberra can seem pretty quiet when you first move up, but there’s a lot of stuff to do when you look around. There’s a very short list below of the many things that are one.
Definitely not comprehensive – if there are other things out there you’re interested in, have a look – it probably exists in some form.
If you have any additions, feel free to post suggestions in the comments section and I can add them.
General ‘what’s on’ sites:
Meetup.com has its own meetings, as well as being useful for highlighting other stuff going on.
IntheTaratory has occasional summaries of upcoming events that are quite good.
Street Chess is a tournament every Saturday from 11 am – 2:30/3pm, at King O’Malleys.
Bad! Slam! No Biscuit! is a poetry night monthly at the Phoenix.
The Word Co-op has readings and events.
