Together with the University of Sydney’s Vice-Principal (External Relations), Tania Rhodes-Taylor, we invite you to share in launching the Footbridge Gallery, a digital placemaking area embedded in the landscape of the University. Enjoy light, sound and live performance as we kick off a new kind of open, shared space.
We’ll have food, drinks and a DJ to help us activate the gallery wall with new artworks. You can find the gallery on the external wall of the Footbridge theatre facing the Edgeworth David building.
Before the official launch we welcome you to our panel discussion. Moderated by City of Sydney Councillor Jess Scully, the interdisciplinary panel will discuss the role of creative disciplines in bringing urban communities together, driving conversations and nurturing a sense of place.
With backgrounds ranging from music composition to sculpture, digital design and performance arts, panellists will explore how sharing creative and innovative research in the arts can contribute to learning, civic debate, placemaking and community engagement. The panel will feature:
Stay for a drink, a bite to eat, and to enjoy the artworks.
