Community Billboard April 18th-April 24th
This weekly community billboard is proudly sponsored by the City of Sydney’s Plan for the Future- Sydney 2030- Making our city more green, global and connected.
The Art Gallery of NSW presents an exploration of the right to land, by contemporary Australian Indigenous artists ,in'Our Lands'. Works from the Gallery’s collection explore the tensions, conflicts, suspicions and political struggles that are central to any discussion about rights to land in Australia.
Our Lands features work by Gordon Bennett, Daniel Boyd, Robert Campbell Jr, Brenda L Croft, Destiny Deacon, Kevin Gilbert, Julie Gough, Gordon Hookey, Djambawa Marawili, Bobby West Tjupurrula, Ben Galmidle Ward and Judy Watson.
Rising Minds is your healthy breakfast dose of big ideas! It is also a global think-tank and free monthly talk series that currently has outposts in London, New York and Toronto. Australian founder Drew Smith, who previously ran Creative Mornings in London, says bringing the series to Sydney is a sort of like a “homecoming” for him.
This week features Professor Susan Thompson, of the City futures research centre at UNSW. Susan explains why we urgently need a strategy that puts health and well-being at the centre of urban planning and smart cities.
