Time Out (Sydney) - - FUTURE SYDNEY -

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.
