Creative Collaborations Talk Series

The Art Month Sydney Creative Collaborations Friday night talk series commenced with a sellout event at the new Surry Hills Design Centre & Library this week.

Two talks were hosted, the first with Romance Was Born designer duo Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales who chatted with artist Del Kathryn Barton about their collaboration and the cross-overs between the worlds of fashion and art.  The lovely Kirsten Galliott, editor of The (Sydney) Magazine, chaired the discussion.

The second talk for the evening saw acclaimed artist and photographer Bill Henson speak with long time friend and musical collaborator Jim Sharman.

More photos from the event can be viewed here.
