The recent media furore surrounding the use of the Sydney Opera House sails for advertising, highlights the tensions that lie beneath, around the use of public space. A panel of architects, anti-gentrification activists, sociologists and cultural commentators, explores the argument for maintaining Sydney's public housing and spaces. The event will be moderated by artist Ian Millis and includes local activist and resident Julie Cooper, architect and urban designer Professor Phillip Thalis, sociologist Eva Cox AO, and Wiradjuri woman and Aboriginal rights activist Bronwyn Penrith.
