The Edition:

Edited by Katia Pase and Matt Harnett, Going Down Swinging 37 has a design to smash you in the face and tales to sweep you into the studios of Kurdistan artists, send you tumbling through the addled streets of Mexico City, and have you squinting through the ochre-dust haze of Australia’s red centre.

Brace yourself for big losses, broken nostalgia and clear-eyed discovery from Dan Kelly, Chloe Wilson, Eric Dando, Fiona Wright, Omar Sakr, Rafael SW and more.



The Launch:

Readings from Omar Sakr, a multi-sensory theatrical experience, food trucks, live music, hide-and-seek spaces, and DJ-ing from Sean M. Whelan – you don’t want to miss this one.

We’re kicking off from 8pm at Rokeby Studios warehouse, Collingwood. Take the 86 tram, or locomotive to Collingwood Station.


A slick $20 gets you entry, a copy of Going Down Swinging 37 hot off the press and free beer, mulled cider and dirt-cheap cocktails all night from the amazing Adelaide Hills crew: Mismatch Brewing Co, Adelaide Hills Distillery and Hills Cider.

Rokeby Studios is a wheelchair accessible venue. If you have any particular access requirements let us know – we want you there.

TICKET SALES ARE NOW OPEN! Book your tix early to avoid disappointment – we’re expecting another sell-out.
