Braddon Busking Hub


Braddon Busking Hub


The Braddon Busking Hub aims to bring a vibrant culture of busking back to Braddon.

Working closely with place-makers and artists, this pilot program will enrich Canberra's bustling Braddon with music and create more opportunities for artists to gain revenue and performance opportunities.​

By buskers, for buskers

This program is devised by musicians with busking experience in Canberra and beyond.

Enriching Braddon

By encouraging buskers to perform in Braddon, we aim to activate public places and showcase our wonderful and talented artists to the Canberra community.

Busking can be a fantastic source of revenue for artists, and also an avenue to develop and fine-tune performance skills and reach a broad audience.
