Community Billboard 12 March – 19 March
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.
White Tree Band
The White Tree Band is a group of Sydney’s most talented musicians, who put their own spin on a range of funk, rock and pop classics.
Their 8 piece line-up with full brass section is one of the most entertaining gigs in town, a show where music and comedy collide. This makes for one highly engaging and energetic performance, and not one to be missed!
Free entry. Bar and kitchen open 5pm.
Curated by Dr Nicola Teffer, the exhibition examines the histories of 13 sites and asks, what are the forces that have shaped our changing city and how do we value and preserve the heritage of the city we inherit?
Demolished Sydney reveals this process of urban evolution through key buildings that have been demolished and replaced. Through fragments salvaged from theatres, hotels and office blocks, alongside stunning photography, artworks and film, Demolished Sydney brings back to life the heritage of a Sydney that is gone but not forgotten.
Closing April 17!
Where: Museum of Sydney
