'Gang' was a new contemporary art festival in the heart of Sydney’s inner city suburb of Chippendale, carving innovative strides in the area of international collaboration.

For the first time, Gang Festival brought together the cutting edge of artist run initiatives in Indonesia and Australia through an artist exchange program, culminating in a showcase of works and art projects in Australia and Indonesia.

The project spanned 7 months and involved over 16 art organisations in over 10 residencies and dozens of community arts projects, building to a spectacular street festival finale on the 29th of January 2006.
