Language/ Cultural Consultant
Join FBi Radio Managing Director and local music lover Clare Holland to discuss the culture war targeting Sydney’s young audiences.
Dreaming of a new future for Sydney’s nightlife
Live music is essential to cities; each year, over half of Australia’s population attended a live music performance. Engaging with live music culture builds communities and connections, and creates a sense of attachment to place; youth culture and music culture are inextricably linked.
Lockout laws mean Sydney’s live music scene faces decline. With fewer stages for emerging artists to perform on, where is the investment in the creative ecology of our city?
In her role as Managing Director of independent youth broadcaster FBi Radio, Clare Holland is committed to fostering and supporting Sydney music, arts, and culture. She’s a prominent supporter of Keep Sydney Open, a campaign aimed at reversing the city’s lockout laws. Join Clare as she discusses the culture war that’s targeting Sydney’s young audiences.
