Panel Discussion: Sydney - A City on the Make

Panel Discussion: Sydney – A City on the Make

What does Australia’s largest city make? Join a timely discussion about Sydney’s craft culture, including its display spaces of museums and galleries, Indigenous stories, recent migrant skills, studios, workshops, making and teaching spaces. Where is creativity most active? How does craft respond to the changing patterns of consumption, where focus is more on experience than possession? What pathways are there for craft practitioners to present their work outside Sydney, especially in our Asia Pacific region? This panel discussion is presented by Garland magazine and The Australian Design Centre.

Speakers include Kevin Murray from Garland who will moderate the panel; Sydney jeweller Bridget Kennedy from Studio 20/17; Nadeena Dixon, a Wiradjuri/Yuin/Dharug Sydney-based textile artist; Lisa Cahill, CEO and Artistic Director of ADC; and Carolina Triana from SSI who earlier this year produced the New Beginnings Festival for Refugee Week.

Details: Wednesday 11 October, Talk 7pm
