A city with…

A 21st century world-class city, built on creativity, business and community.

Futurecity’s team in Sydney is made up of local and international curators, strategists and advisors, bringing high-level experience from cultural cities across the world.

Arts and culture generate close to $5 billion a year in business income for New South Wales. But the importance of culture to the city’s future can’t be assessed in return on investment alone.

Futurecity advocates cultural planning from the outset of urban design briefs and masterplans. To be successful, new urban developments need to craft a distinct narrative. The story of a place – what it means to the community and the city, its architecture, its public realm, its animation, and an understanding of its historical and contemporary context – defines its ability to succeed and thrive.

Sydney has invested in ambitious public art projects. But it is now imperative that the city’s private sector sees itself as part of an innovative cultural journey – a key player in the arts as opposed to an old-fashioned sponsor.

With this approach, Sydney can take its position on the global stage as a world city of culture.
