Four Winds is a biennial festival of classic, cultural and world music. It takes place every second Easter in a parkland bush amphitheatre near Bermagui, amidst the wild beauty of the Sapphire Coast, on the far south coast of NSW, Australia.

Four Winds is engaged with our community in the design and delivery of a range of other activities outside of the Festival. They include Let's Talk (previously known as Brain Food), a series of conversations curated by Caroline Baum about culture, creativity and building resilience, Inspiring, our music education working with local music and vocal educators and young people. And projects like Bermagui Talks, which built on the stories of local people like the dairy farmers, fishermen, saw millers and environmentalists and turned them into a sound installation which was played for visitors on the Seagull boat.

We are committed to developing the role of community producers designing ongoing activities which invite and encourage people in our region to participate in the making and production of arts and cultural activities, with music as the language.
