Creative conversations: Social interaction

PACT’s resident artists lead a conversation about the culture of new communities

Produced by the City of Sydney

PACT’s resident artist Emily Dash leads a creative discussion about the culture of new communities. How similar or different is the culture of the emerging Green Square community?

Get involved in the conversation to explore successful communities around the world. Challenge perceptions and dream up innovative solutions.

Communities rely on social connections for economic success. Dr Felton Earl’s case study of Chicago neighbourhoods highlights collective efficacy as the standout factor for well-being.

Emily invites the panel to examine how the arts can foster social interaction and a sense of valuable contribution. Hear different perspectives, contribute to the pledge wall and chat with strangers who may also be your neighbours on the buddy bench.


Eight artists who collaborate as performers, musicians, technicians and devisers, evolving out of a shared interest in contemporary performance and a collaborative creative process.
