Visions of Sydney
The 1788 arrival of Governor Phillip at Farm Cove with the 11 ships of the First Fleet saw the displacement of the peoples of the Eora Nation and the establishment of the British penal colony that would become Sydney Town and, eventually, the City of Sydney. From a Georgian town to a global city, what visions have guided and directed the shapes and places of Sydney, its architecture, its landscape, its institutions?
Join this Seminar presented by Independent Scholars Association of Australia, NSW Chapter in conjunction with the State Library of NSW to explore Visions of Sydney – past, present and future.
