City Talks 2013
What creative life do you want for Sydney?
Great cities’ reputations are built on their cultural life and Sydney is no exception.
From the museums, galleries, theatres and concert halls to street art, small bars, shops and hole-in-the-wall venues – some of the best things about Sydney are bound up in its cultural life.
How can we inspire an even richer creative culture? How do we support creative people to live and work here? And how can we encourage people to go out to shows or invest in local work?
Hear from Carol Coletta, CEO, Artplace America, about how Artplace changed culture and creative communities across the US and what Sydney could learn from the experience.
A panel of creative leaders and innovators will debate the opportunities and practical steps we could take to inspire a more creative Sydney.
Tell us what creative life you want for Sydney.
