Heritage in the City's Future

 

Sydney Living Museums’ Director, Strategy & Engagement Dr Caroline Butler-Bowdon, and Director, Heritage & Collections Ian Innes, were recently invited to contribute to The Sydney Culture Essays published by The Committee for Sydney. 

The Sydney Culture Essays capture the thinking of some of the leading voices in Sydney’s cultural life, teasing out the debates and conversations shaping Sydney’s cultural landscape, navigating the role of culture for Sydneysiders and communicating our identity and potential to the world.

Caroline and Ian’s essay examines the importance of heritage in Sydney’s future.  Other essayists include Sydney Festival Artistic Director Wesley Enoch, MCA Director Elizabeth Ann MacGregor, Director of Carriageworks Lisa Havilah, art collector and patron John Kaldor AO, and artist Abdul Abdullah.

The publication was recently launched in Sydney by the NSW Premier, the Hon Gladys Berejiklian MP.
