On Arts Wednesday 18 September 2019, Sylvia’s guests were Chrissie Kirkwood and Fergus Barker, landscape architecture students from UTS. As a student exercise, they were required to reimagine Rushcutters Creek, once a meandering stream rising in Darlinghurst and emptying into Rushcutters Bay. What is left  is a mainly concrete stormwater channel through an area that was once a popular picnic and recreation site in the early nineteenth century. Their proposals are imaginative and exciting and are being considered by the 2 councils, through whose land the creek flows.
