Green Bans Art Walk (GBAW) was a collaboration between BigFagPress, Cross Art Projects, Firstdraft Depot, Fiona MacDonald and a number of Woolloomooloo and Kings Cross residents.

GBAW was an extensive research project on the excitement and struggle of the ’70s in Woolloomooloo, Darlinghurst and Kings Cross. A guided walk was available to the public and a self-guided walk was available for locals, tourists and scholars who wanted to know more about the Green Bans and how they shaped the urban development of Sydney’s suburbs.

GBAW was commissioned by Performance Space for its WALK program in 2011 as part of Sydney Design 2011, presented by the Powerhouse Museum. It was supported by the Awesome Foundation and was a part of Weekend @ Firstdraft Depot..
