Are you or do you know someone who considers themselves fairly clued into Sydney nightlife? This might be the job for you.
The City of Sydney is currently on the hunt for members in a new panel that will come together to better Sydney’s nightlife. It’s about time, right?
The panel would be made up of gung-ho nightlife lovers who “will provide expert advice on our nightlife and cultural policies and strategies. It will also advise on our initiatives and communication with creative, cultural and nightlife communities and other stakeholders.”
Speaking on the current state of the city’s nightlife, Sydney’s Lord Mayor Clover Moore says “there is no escaping the fact that the NSW Government’s lockout laws have put the brakes on Sydney’s night-time economy… The lockout laws were a sledgehammer blow when what we needed was evidence-based policies that allow well-managed venues to trade as part of a safe and sustainable late-night culture”.
She went on to add that “We will keep advocating for changes to the laws, but in the meantime we need government, business and industry to work together to identify practical ways to boost our night-time culture and support businesses operating in the night-time economy.”
This is where the panel comes into play. “[The panel] will help us understand firsthand the challenges and opportunities facing Sydney’s night-time economy, and advise on how we can engage with and bring together the creative, cultural, nightlife and private sectors to realise our vision for Sydney as an exciting and diverse 24-hour city,”
