Sydney Festival 2014

In January 2014, we joined forces with Sydney Festival for the fifth year to celebrate the energy, creativity and diversity of our city. As a major hub for the Festival, we played host to an outstanding line-up of performances on campus.

To celebrate our partnership with Sydney Festival, we asked Sydneysiders to reveal how our city inspires through a photo competition. Watch this video to see our city through their eyes.
