Design Excellence 2014 - Sydney's Cultural Jigsaw

Tomorrow night I am MC at City of Sydney’s Design Excellence forum on cultural precincts and how they can shape our city. There's a huge investment in cultural precincts worldwide and Sydney's cultural institutions are also planning on major capital development programs - to draw in new visitors and connect the spaces. What sort of planning approaches work (and what won't work) and can Sydney's institutions bring the love and work together? So many questions. So many questions. If you're in town - grab a ticket (it's free!): Here's who is speaking:

In conversation with Elizabeth Ann Macgregor and Louise Herron - 25th November, 2013

I'll be speaking with Elizabeth Ann Macgregor, Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney and Louise Herron, CEO of Sydney Opera House on Monday 25th November, 2013, as part of the end of year celebrations for SAMAG.

Here's the information from SAMAG's website:

"Fenella Kernebone in conversation with these two distinguished arts leaders, Elizabeth Ann Macgregor, Director, Museum of Contemporary Art, Australia and Louise Herron, AM, CEO Sydney Opera House will discuss the year that was and reflect on the future of creative leadership in Australia. Our experienced guests will engage in a broad ranging discussion and speak to questions including: What shape is Australia’s arts industry currently in? What constitutes some of the biggest backwards and forwards steps in the sector? Has the status of the arts sector changed? How do you manage the process of transforming an organisation? What does the sector need to do to successfully adapt to change and remain relevant? What are the future opportunities in arts practice, funding and education? What will arts audiences expect in the future? What qualities will the next generation of creative leaders need?"
