When you think about Sydney’s great icons, you cannot go past the pioneering achievement of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Tonight we welcome another pioneer – the man who decided to let people climb on it! After hearing from the founder and chairman of BridgeClimb, Paul Cave, you might like to go on a guided tour of the Sydney moderns exhibition and see how various artists have captured the ‘coathanger’. And for a small taste of Melbourne, the Artbar features Playwrite, on their second visit to us from the southern capital.
