Sydney Writers' Festival live, local and FREE @ Griffith Regional Theatre

  • Griffith Regional Theatre Neville Place Griffith, NSW, 2680 Australia (map)

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, a digital live-streaming project, will bring Festival sessions to cities and regional centres across the country.

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.

Come and go throughout the day as you please.
