Big Ideas: The Porous City: Art, Architecture & Development Public Forum

Posted: 11 Aug 2017
Join us and Quentin Dempster at a public forum for some thought provoking discussion and one last look at Richard Goodwin’s Navigator: bringing together select artworks, sculptures, drawings and models produced over the past 25 years.

As an artist and architect greatly concerned with the built environment and public space, Richard Goodwin describes his work as “existing between public and private space”. This will be used as a provocation for discussion on regional development, the built environment and the role of culture and quality of life in urban design and planning for Western Sydney.

The panel will be led by Walkley Award-winning journalist, author and broadcaster Quentin Dempster AM best known for his decades of work with the ABC. Panellists Richard Goodwin, Emma Husar MP, Craig Butler, Assistant General Manager of Penrith City Council and the Hon Peter Anderson AM, Chairman of Penrith Performing & Visual Arts, will discuss their thoughts on our relationship with our local built environment. This will be followed by audience question and answer time.

Come along and take one last look at the Gallery’s Winter Exhibition Suite, featuring the work of artist and architect Richard Goodwin. Light refreshments will be served.
