Public Galleries Summit – final program announced


With less than four weeks to go, the final program has been announced. 

A limited number of day tickets are now available!


Art & Artists will bring together staff from galleries throughout Australia and New Zealand during Sydney’s busiest month of art and culture. The gallery sector is diverse, covering major cultural institutions, regional galleries, artist run initiatives, contemporary art spaces and of course, most importantly, artists themselves.

Focusing on the distinction that the visual arts and artists bring to the cultural space, Art & Artists will present a lively program including panel discussions, workshops, a summit dinner and other networking events at one of Australia’s most significant contemporary arts centres, as well as other venues across the city.



When: Sunday 18 March – Wednesday 21 March 2018
Where: Carriageworks, Eveleigh NSW (plus other Sydney venues – see the program)
