Sydney’s events industry has been asked to put its best creative foot forward and collaborate with the city’s most creative minds for this year’s Creative Sydney, a week-long mix of discussions, presentations and performances held in June as part of Vivid Sydney (27 May-21 June).
Creative Sydney celebrates Sydney’s diverse talents in an inspiring series of events, bringing together local and global leaders to explore the potential of our creative industries.
“We want to collaborate with the events industry’s brightest and most creative people to present a memorable and inspiring event that helps build Sydney’s international presence as a creative hub,” said Creative Sydney artistic director Jess Scully.
“It’s an incredible opportunity to connect with your peers across the creative industries and to showcase the industry’s creativity to a wide audience.”
Creative Sydney is developing cross-discipline events, discussion panels and performances from key creative industries – architecture, broadcasting and publishing, design, events, fashion, film, gaming, music, performance, photography, technology, and visual communications.
The program is part of Vivid Sydney the city’s annual festival of light, music and ideas and the largest festival of its kind in Australia and Southern Hemisphere. Last year was the first year Vivid Sydney was held, and the Creative Sydney program attracted around 9,000 people.
“This year is a concentrated program of just one week and we will have an incredible pop-up venue at Circular Quay which will be a destination in itself. The program will include a combination of professional development events and large-scale entertainment for the public,” said Scully.
