First Friday: Living Here Now
- When 3 Jul - 3 Jul 2015
CNR OXFORD ST & GREENS RD, PADDINGTON
On 3 July, First Fridays explores different experiences of living here now from contemporary Aboriginal stories to the housing bubble in Sydney.
UNSW Galleries presents a series of short films from the National Film & Sound Archive’s Black Screen program to kick off UNSW Art & Design’s NAIDOC week program.
These provocative, humorous and engaging snapshots of contemporary Aboriginal life by esteemed filmmakers including Beck Cole (Plains Empty), Wayne Blair (The Sapphires) and Warwick Thornton (Samson and Delilah) convey a diversity of Indigenous responses to living in Australia today.
These films are screened in association with the current exhibition We are in Wonder LAND: New Experimental Art from Central Australia, and will continue during NAIDOC week, 5–12 July.
The High Cost of Living in Sydney
Trying to buy a house in Sydney? Triple J’s Tom Tilley leads a panel of experts delving into the heated debate around housing affordability, the property market bubble and examine its current impact on home-buyers’ and housing options in Sydney.
Panellists include real estate agent Ivan Bresic, Director of BresicWhitney, and Allison Heller, Manager of Social Strategy at the City of Sydney (TBC).
A 40-minute discussion will be followed by Q & A. The event is presented in association with Shelter Union, an exhibition of artist/architect collaborations that propose new approaches for living in the 21st century.
Shelter Union is on until 15 August 2015 as part of the Living Here Now series.
This is a free event. Beer, wine and food available.
First Fridays is a regular program of curated events at UNSW Galleries. Held on the first Friday of each month, the galleries host a series of lively events after hours, engaging ideas in contemporary art and culture.
