Coinciding with the 20th Anniversary Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi, the Sydney Sculpture Conference featured leading international and Australian speakers who discussed the importance, impact, challenges and opportunities of sculpture in public space. A spectrum of perspectives and insights were shared via keynote presentations and panel discussions examining a range of themes such as community engagement, curating & commissioning processes, environment, partnerships & collaboration, collections and artist practice.

Programed to bring together artists, curators, collectors, academics and arts professionals, the annual Sydney Sculpture Conference aims to develop collaborative partnerships that foster creative ideas exchange between local, national and international sculpture and art communities; while raising the profile, interest and awareness of sculpture across Australia

Thank you to all of the speakers and delegates for their participation at the 2016 conference, we look forward to launching our 2017 program mid next year in partnership with Sculpture Network.
