This year marks the 50th anniversary of the 1967 referendum when over 90% of Australians voted yes.

The Aboriginal-Australian Fellowship and the Federal Council for the Advancement of Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders campaigned in Sydney to gather the support of politicians, unions and churches.
The exhibition shows some of the heroes that worked for years to change the constitution to improve the human rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

OKeeffe, Preston, Cossington Smith: Making Modernism at the Art Gallery of NSW features the iconic art of American Georgia OKeeffe. The exhibition also features modernist masterpieces by pioneering Australian artists Margaret Preston and Grace Cossington Smith.
The ground-breaking exhibition draws together about 30 works by each artist from the breadth of their careers.
While OKeeffe, Preston and Cossington Smith developed highly individual styles, they are connected by their choice of subject, their experimentation with light, colour and form, and their commitment to presenting alternative ways of seeing the world.
Each artist identified in their paintings a personalised or modernised sense of place, and in so doing developed new art forms that expressed something of the identity and culture of their respective nations.
The exhibition is presented by the Heide Museum of Modern Art and the Art Gallery of NSW in partnership with the Georgia OKeeffe Museum, Santa Fe and the Queensland Art Gallery.
An inspirational story of courage and resilience that reveals the transformative power of story-telling through the arts.
The Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe is an inspirational new documentary, celebrating the remarkable resilience and spirit of four African Australian women from Eritrea, Kenya, Guinea and Sierra Leone. Aminata, Rosemary, Yordy and Yarrie all fled violence and sexual abuse in their homelands, eventually finding a safe haven in Australia. For years they each held their pain within, until they decide to join a theatre group and speak out.
Under the nurturing guidance of acclaimed theatre director Ros Horin, the four women came together to let their life stories be transformed into an extraordinary theatrical experience which became a sell-out success from its very first show.
Filmed over three years, this new documentary charts the personal journeys of Aminata, Rosemary, Yordy and Yarrie, from their first theatre group meeting through trauma, healing and public triumph. The Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe travelled from western Sydney, to the city, to the international stage.
The Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe had its world premiere at the Sydney Film Festival 2016 and was named one of the top five Australian documentaries in the Audience Awards. Following two sell-out screenings at the Melbourne International Film Festival, it came third in the Audience Awards for documentary.
Heartrending, heartfelt and ultimately uplifting, the film offers a message of hope and support for women and children who have suffered around the world, whether in the context of war, or in a domestic situation.
Isaac has come home from the blood and horror of a foreign war to look after his sick Dad, only to find a family home that looks like a bomb has gone off. And, in a way, thats just whats happened. It turns out his younger sibling is transgender, his Mum isnt under the thumb of her domineering husband any more, and theyre going to smash the patriarchy to smithereens.
But in this absurd comedy, blowing up the past doesnt necessarily set you free.
[an] audacious and uproarious black comedy The New York Times.

For our second Late Night Library series in 2017, were teaming with Sydney-based curator-producers Roxzan Bowes and Brendan OConnell. Enjoy five unique and immersive performance experiences at our inner city libraries.
Literature has a way of bringing people together, yet in a fast-paced, social media-driven world of likes and tweets, we rarely take the time to talk about books with one another.
Youve heard of speed reading, youve heard of speed dating; but have you ever heard of speed book club? Join us for this wild night of speed book dating, in which youll hopefully fall head over heels for a book youve never read, and go home with a list of names (not numbers) of books for you to get to know.
With a paper bag placed gently on your head (eyes and mouth cut out for seeing and speaking, of course), meet other people who share your love for the craft of writing, and make some new friends through your shared (or oppositional) taste in literature. Participants will be asked to bring a book with them to be a part of a book swap at the end of the night, so the bag on your head will double as a book bag when you head home.
Youll never see a book club or speed dating in the same way again!
This series of Late Night Library is produced by City of Sydney, and presented in collaboration with Roxzan Bowes and Brendan OConnell.

Going back to the 1980s, the Cross is still the place to let your hair down. The thrill of nightlife is now mixed with an increase of people doing it tough. AIDS and drug-related deaths were fast putting out the party. In the background, sounds were changing and so was fashion and feel.

1917: The Great Strike marks the centenary of one of Australias largest industrial conflicts with an exhibition of historical objects alongside commissioned artworks by Raquel Ormella, Tom Nicholson, Will French, Franck Gohier and Sarah Contos.
The strike began when employees at Eveleigh Railway Yards and the Randwick Tram Sheds downed tools in protest against new working conditions imposed during a time of war. Around 5,790 railway and tramway employees walked off the job, protesting against the introduction of a card systemthat recorded work times and output, and was intended to improve worker efficiency.
Over the period of the strike its estimated that across the state around 77,350 workers went on strike. When the strike petered out in mid-September 1917, many employees at Eveleigh, and elsewhere on the NSW rail and tram network never got their jobs back. Those re-hired at the Eveleigh yards found their jobs had been downgraded. Although the nationwide strike lasted just six weeks, its consequences lingered for decades, creating a highly politicised workforce and a generation of politicians, including premiers and prime ministers.
Theexhibition will use large-scale striking images, moving footage, oral history excerpts, music and poetry, alongside commissioned artworks to tell the story of a movement that started in the old Eveleigh railway workshops.
On Saturday 5 August, The Great Strike Community Day commemorates the centenary of this important historical moment and explores its contemporary resonances through artist talks, panel discussions, performances and workshops at Carriageworks.
1917: The Great Strikeis a collaboration between Carriageworks and City of Sydney.
Elisabeth Cummings is highly regarded in the Australian art world. She is rightly celebrated for her inventive vision, fluency of textural brushwork and her painterly ability to effortlessly flex between the forms of abstraction and figuration.
Its the ineffable that we try to touch, she says. I love that quote by Fairweather: Painting to me is something of a tightrope act, it is between representation and the other thing - whatever that is. Its difficult to keep ones balance.
The retrospective exhibition includes a range of subject matter; abstracts, landscapes, still lifes and studio interiors, especially those painted at her studio at Wedderburn on the outskirts of Sydney. Printmaking has also been important for Cummings and she has worked in monoprinting and etching, collaborating with master printer Michael Kempson Cicada Press at the University of NSW for a decade.
The exhibition coincides with the launch of a full colour monograph of her work with an introduction by John McDonald, preface by Terence Maloon, Director ANU Drill Hall Gallery and appreciations by a range of writers such as Michael Kempson, Anna Johnson, Guy Warren, plus an interview with the artist by Sioux Garside, the independent curator of the retrospective.

In 79 AD Mount Vesuvius erupted, spewing huge waves of volcanic ash over the Bay of Naples. One of Romes greatest writers and scientists, Pliny the Elder, was stationed across the water from Pompeii at Misenum. Not just a great scholar he was the military commander of Misenums strategic naval base. He ordered a fleet of warships to rescue as many people as possible from the doomed city.
So began one of the first recorded rescues by sea of civilians by a military force. Discover the untold story of Pompeii in this world-class exhibition at the Australian National Maritime Museum. It features an extraordinary collection of over 100 objects, including haunting body casts.
