Sydney Writers’ Festival comes to Lake Mac


The Sydney Writers’ Festival will be coming to Lake Macquarie next weekend, with the headline events being streamed directly to the Lake Mac Centre for Performing Arts.

Ten sessions will be screened from Friday 3 to Sunday 5 May, featuring award-winning journalists, best-selling authors and Archibald Prize-winning artists.

Highlights include a discussion about the relationships between politicians and the press led by Annabel Crabb, a talk by Leigh Sales about how people endure tragedy, and a panel with Clementine Ford and Adam Liaw which explores toxic masculinity.

Council’s Acting Arts, Culture and Tourism Manager Jo Smith said the Live and Local – Live Stream from Sydney Writers’ Festival is a fabulous opportunity for people interested in hearing from nationally and internationally renowned writers but can’t make it to Sydney.

“Our audiences will be able to get the full experience of the live Sydney event,” Ms Smith said.

“They will not only hear from profound thinkers, they will have opportunity to participate in Q and A sessions, sending questions directly to the Sydney stage.

“This is a great example of how digital live-streaming can connect our city and its people with regional, national and global events.”
