Book Launch: Sydney – We Need to Talk

  • Wilkinson Lecture Theatre 250 (Arch LT 1), Wilkinson Building 148 City Road Darlington, NSW, 2008 (map)

Sydney – We Need to Talk is a collection of short interventions about the politics of urbanisation. This illustrated book is an experiment with collaborative short-form writing. Each co-authored piece involves a dialogue between both people and places dealing with themes from displacement and digitalisation to decommodification and democratization. Sydney is the central character in each essay, and each essay goes somewhere else: Sydney meets another city.


Speakers: Professor Robyn Dowling, Associate Professor Kurt Iveson The University of Sydney, Vanessa Berry author of Mirror Sydney, Artist/Printer in Residence Wendy Murray.
