The recent media furore surrounding use of the Sydney Opera House sails for advertising highlights larger tensions around the use of public space. Bringing together architects, anti-gentrification activists, sociologists and cultural commentators, this panel discussion explores the argument for maintaining Sydney’s public housing and spaces.
Moderated by artist Ian Milliss and including local activist and resident Julie Cooper, architect and urban designer Professor Phillip Thalis, sociologist Eva Cox AO, and Wiradjuri woman and Aboriginal rights activist Bronwyn Penrith.
Taking its title from Terry Irving and Rowan Cahill's book on dissident politics and actions in Sydney, 'Radical Sydney' is a program of talks, documentary screenings and performances engages with the histories and futures of local activism concerned with housing, public space, sexuality and gender.
