What's On


RESORT is an iconic annual event series celebrating the James St precinct and its community as a leading cultural hub on both a local and national level. The series showcases James St’s retail, art, design and food communities and is driven by the precinct’s cultural trailblazers. 

Having established itself as a landmark event for the precinct over the past four years, RESORT has become an innovative forum of exploration and cross-pollination between culture and commerce. With a distinctive global outlook, RESORT seeks to explore international trends and ideas through a local lens and has enjoyed groundbreaking partnerships, media coverage and engagement over its tenure.  

Let’s take a look back at the highlights of RESORT to date. From Man Repeller’s first ever Australian visit to a custom M.A.C x RESORT collection – it’s been a wild ride!
