International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) has announced the introduction of a new dedicated Creative Industries stream to its Legacy Program, to showcase Australia’s home-grown talent on the global stage and support the next generation of creative leaders.
This additional focus expands on ICC Sydney’s existing program and connections, providing clients and their delegates with the opportunity to collaborate with Sydney and New South Wales’ thriving creative economy, through a diverse range of stimulating and inspiring arts and cultural encounters.
The program will actively work to cultivate a lasting legacy from fostering support for Sydney’s emerging and established artists through cultural institutions and colleges to engaging new talent for event performances from Talent Development Project and connecting with festival programs including VIVID and Sydney Festival.
Talent Development Project’s CEO, Kim Lemke said Sydney has an especially strong calibre of talent and applauded the program’s introduction.
“We helped the ICC Sydney team during its critical opening period to host an official test event and the venue continues to regularly book our students for pre-show and intermission entertainment. It is gratifying to deepen our three-year partnership by introducing incredibly talented local artists, performers and musicians to ICC Sydney’s clients to share their skills with the rest of the world.”
Sydney Festival Executive Director, Chris Tooher equally praised ICC Sydney for its dedication to the cultural and creative growth of the local region.
“ICC Sydney sits right on the doorstep of our city’s bourgeoning creative industries and plays an integral role in raising Sydney’s global reputation for artistic excellence. This initiative to build enriching cultural experiences into events programs will make a significant contribution to the sector.”
