Join SAMAG in discussion with key policy and political stakeholders about the effect of the lock out laws on the arts and the impact of the arts on local communities.
Far from being a settled topic, the Sydney Lock Out Laws have remained in place despite heated opposition from many in the night economy.
Where does the arts sector fit in and are there opportunities to be had in this new cultural norm?
This seminar will also turn a lens in on the arts sector to consider the impact of gentrification across Sydney and ask if this is another kind of lock out?
