Many aspects of life are expensive. Mortgage or rent payments can be high. Food costs money. Bills for utilities pile up. No sooner have you paid one lot of council rates, insurance premiums or car registration and the next one is due. After paying the regular expenses there may be little left over for concert tickets, magazines and entrance fees to exhibitions. However, some things of a cultural nature can be accessed for free.

One of my favourite free cultural things is street art. It is exciting to come across a piece of street art I haven't spotted before. Yesterday I was on my way to visit a friend when I spotted an interesting piece of street art I don't recall seeing before. It was across the road from some street art I have photographed in the past. I don't know if I just didn't see it previously or if it is new.

Some art gallery exhibitions have free entry. Paintings, photographs, pottery, sculpture, mosaics, fabric creations, quilts or mixed media creations may be on display. The exhibition may be an annual community event or to bring public attention to an issue such as Mental Health.

Sculptures can be seen in public places such as malls and parks. There may be a single piece or a group of sculptures. Some are 'serious' and others are quirky or amusing.

This morning I read a free magazine while I drank my cappuccino. Some cafes provide a selection of free magazines for patrons to read while they enjoy a drink or something to eat. Often there is a pile of the latest magazines so people can take one if they wish. I find these magazines interesting because they usually feature local personalities, shops and issues.

There are also numerous free newspapers available these days. Some are home delivered and others are left in central locations so those who are interested can pick up a copy each week or month. These papers may be written for the general community or specifically for seniors, parents or another group.

Buskers provide free music of various styles. It can be relaxing to sit on a bench on a pleasant day and listen to music. Sometimes the music is something familiar and other times it will be unexpected and quite different from what I would listen to at home.

At times there are free concerts for anyone to enjoy. There are also pageants and parades one can watch without paying a cent.

There are other displays and events where entry is just a gold coin.

Life can be expensive but some things of a cultural nature can be enjoyed for free. All of these things provide different experiences and can be lots of fun.
