City Conversations 2014: Shaping a creative city – a plan for Sydney’s cultural future

produced by City of Sydney

Culture and creativity are integral parts of every global city. From art and music in our streets, to communal dining on rooftops and start-up creative businesses in basements, it’s time to explore other ways we can build a more creative city.

In developing Creative City, Sydney’s first-ever cultural policy, the City of Sydney put our cultural life under the microscope.

We’ve taken note of what thousands of people told us they wanted for the cultural life of Sydney, taken stock of what’s already happening and outlined what’s needed to make this policy a reality.

Hear how we will work with the community to foster a more creative Sydney.

Annabel Crabb will lead a panel discussion with Lord Mayor Clover Moore, Ben Eltham, Hetti Perkins, John O’Callaghan and Rachel Healy following an introduction from Claudia Karvan.
