City of Sydney councillor and public art curator
The battles we fight now will decide what kind of city we’ll have. Will we have priced out all of the creativity and diversity? Will we be chained to the fossil fuel age, suffering the effects of climate change? I’m hopeful we can keep social and creative diversity by innovating in affordable housing policies, carving out space for nightlife, artistic expression and creative production. I see future Sydney as the creative studio of the Asia Pacific – a place where we create content and tell stories for our region and beyond. I see future Sydney as a laboratory for sustainable, inclusive design – where we will prototype models the world will need in the 21st century. The choices we make today will decide if this is a city that is a welcoming, accessible, dynamic place, where new ideas are born.
