All around you in Sydney’s public spaces people are doing the most unexpected things. This exhibition celebrates the unusual stories of the city’s public buildings, parks and street corners, and may answer some of your burning questions about strange things you have seen happening in our shared spaces.
Explore some of our most loved sites – Bennelong Point, the Museum of Sydney, Hyde Park, Central Station and Town Hall – and see how we, the public, are shaping them. Discover what a handmade cedar coffin, a silver trowel and an ASIO surveillance picture can tell you about the remarkable history of Town Hall, or what a 2-tonne cannon has to do with the iconic Sydney Opera House.
Tell us your stories – online and in the exhibition – and share the things that make you stop, look, and embrace life in your public spaces.
Alongside the exhibition, is the Public Sydney blog that will explore the public spaces of Sydney, expose some of their secrets, and collect stories about the city locations we all share.
