Arts NSW + REMIX
We’re super excited to announce our partnership with REMIX Sydney 2016 to co-curate a series of sessions exploring cultural precincts and creative communities.
Join us for the following sessions to hear how arts and culture are at the centre of major infrastructure projects and learn about new approaches to growing creative communities across NSW.
June 2 – Keynote
Leslie Koch, President for The Trust for Governors Island, New York will deliver a keynote presentation on the development of Governors Island.
Governors Island has been transformed from an abandoned military base into a vibrant public space, welcoming hundreds of thousands of seasonal visitors and a diverse array of arts and cultural programs.
Leslie’s presentation will take place at 9.45am, 2 June.
June 3 – Panel
Creative Communities – infrastructure for dynamic cities
As creative zones increasingly dominate the thinking of planners what is the role of art and culture in the development of creative cities and communities?
This session looks at what is needed in terms of developing appropriate environments, networks and infrastructure. It examines how the cultural sector can better interface with other creative clusters such as the growing tech scene. How can the arts influence and shape urban development projects? How do we think about holistic place-making when thinking about the infrastructure of cities? Is the growth of a creative city largely organic or can we engineer it through tools such as policy and investment? How do we balance top down with community empowerment and grass roots cultural activity?
Our panel members include:
- Leslie Koch, President & Director, Governors Island
- Sam Mostyn, Chair, Carriageworks, Chair, Citigroup, Board member, Australia Council for the Arts, Virgin Australia, Transurban, Mirvac, Cover-More Group, President, Australian Council for International Development
- Lindsay Miller, Managing Director, Dubai Design District (d3) – UAE
This panel takes place at 9.50am, 3 June.
