Sydney Writers Festival Live & Local

One of Australia’s best-loved forums for literature, ideas and storytelling, Sydney Writers’ Festival will stream its headline events from Roslyn Packer Theatre in Walsh Bay direct to Griffith Regional Theatre on 28 May.

Prepare to be stimulated and engaged by conversations, debates and discussions, as the Festival brings the world’s finest authors to Griffith in real time. As well as hearing new ideas from great thinkers, audiences have the opportunity to participate in Q&A sessions at each event, sending questions direct to the Sydney stage.

Following the success of the program in 2016, Sydney Writers’ Festival will continue to expand its horizons. Live and Local, our digital live-streaming project, will bring Festival sessions to cities and regional centres across the country.

Our partners have chosen events from the 2017 program to live stream to their local community. Audiences have the opportunity to ask questions of the guest authors in Sydney via a live feed.

In its third year, Live and Local will reach audiences across Australia with satellite venues in the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Northern Territory, Queensland, South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia joining the conversation live via our digital livestream.
