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.
