Henry Davis York, 44 Martin Place, Sydney

Entertainment is an essential part of the culture of communities.  Over the last 20 years, Sydney’s culture has changed with the loss of many venues formerly providing all manner of entertainment.  Its cultural life has suffered as a result.  Governments have now realised that this loss needs to be reversed.  The Live Music Office, a Commonwealth initiative and the City of Sydney Council have been working together to effect that.  At this seminar, four people who have been involved in the revival of entertainment in the city will discuss what has and is being done to achieve this within the context of the late night economy.


John Wardle of the National Live Music Office, a Commonwealth initiative has a background in live music policy across the three tiers of government and is a working musician and music teacher.

Hugh Nichols City of Sydney Strategy Advisor – Live Music and Performance.  With local live music and performance declining in recent years, Hugh and the City developed its live music and performance action plan in 2014, which aims to support emerging musicians and performance artists to build their careers and audiences through a variety of avenues.

Tim Moore is a  Town Planner who was most recently the Director of Planning at the former Marrickville Council.  Whilst at Marrickville Council, Tim was responsible for championing the Sydenham Station Creative Hub.

Kerri Glasscock has worked in various roles on the Sydney arts scene for the past 18 years. In 2004 she co-founded the now legendary underground performance space 505 in Surry Hills. Over the next 5 years under her co-direction 505 grew from a one night a week underground venue to a full-time professional performance space now presenting 6 nights per week of local, interstate and international acts as Venue 505.
