Sydney Festival Promotes Australian Culture

If your clients are headed to Australia for the winter (or summer, as it is there), encourage them to check out the Sydney Festival, currently running in the eponymous city.

For three weeks each January, the Sydney Festival offers a program of around 80 events involving more than 1,000 artists from Australia and around the world covering dance, theatre, music, visual arts, cross media and forums. This year's festival will host 11 world premieres, 15 Australian exclusives and 14 Australian premieres, and is expected to attract approximately 1 million visitors.

The Festival uses more than 25 venues across the city including Sydney Opera House, Seymour Centre, Riverside Theatres and The University of Sydney, as well as parks and city streets.

Top Tip: New this year is Black Capital, a series of performances, seminars and exhibitions reflecting Sydney's contemporary Indigenous culture in Carriageworks in the heart of Redfern.
