The third Arts Thursday segment on the Sydney Architecture Festival focuses on Ethics in an Age of Excess. This will be a preview of a panel discussion querying if architecture has lost its social purpose, and its focus on the public good during the current building boom and the construction of bigger and ‘better’ buildings – at what cost?

Tune in soon after 10:30 for a conversation with Shaun Carter principal architect of Carter Williamson, previous NSW Chapter President of the Institute of Architects and a member of the discussion panel.

Ethics in an Age of Excess will be held 2pm – 3pm on Sunday 30th Sep 2018 at the Utzon Room, Sydney Opera House

Then meet designer, artist and creative maker Kathleen Berney. She is one of five textile and craft artists presenting a textile-based exhibition, Shells, celebrating Sydney Craft Week at the Barometer Gallery in Paddington.

Using textile processes, artists Barbara Rogers, Irene Manion, Beth Hatton, Liz Gemmel and Kathleen celebrate the beauty and diversity of shells. It will be accompanied by a Shibori scarf workshop with Liz Gemmell.

The exhibition runs from Wednesday 3rd October – Saturday 20th October and the Shibori workshop is on Saturday 13th October from 1pm-3pm.
