Be. Live the City.

This exhibition is a love letter to our city and the people who live in it.

Produced by the City of Sydney

How do we trace ourselves onto the city and allow the city to trace itself onto us? From how we move, think and see to how we play, discover and dream, how can the city inspire us to be more fully ourselves?

This exhibition brings to life the city’s rich past by re-imagining moments in time. Contrasting archival photographs and recorded stories with contemporary interpretations, the exhibition highlights how the past can inform the present and stir new ways of being. It shows that history is not only what’s documented and preserved, it is also what is lived by us each day.

We invite you to imagine all a city could be, and the city we want to live in, together.
