So good you never want to leave.
This summer an iconic Sydney building and park will temporarily be reborn into GOOD SPACE, a hive of activity buzzing with Good Things, Good Ideas, Good Times, Good People and Good Vibes.
GOOD SPACE is a grassroots activation striving to jump-start the city we love, by reimagining an underutilised space to reignite the joy, surprise and delight in Sydneysiders and visitors alike.
Our goal is to create vibrant and viable creative, cultural and environmental sectors, and foster collective action towards a stronger sustainable and thriving Sydney.
