Sydney 2023

Creative Footprint (CFP) is a data-driven study that benchmarks nocturnal governance structures and maps creative space and communities to study the cultural strength and impact of a city’s music and nightlife ecosystem.

Vibelab Asia Pacific Director Jane Slingo said: 

“We’re very pleased to present the Creative Footprint Sydney during a transformative time for live music in NSW. In 2017, Global Cities After Dark brought Lutz Leichsenring to Sydney to present the very first Creative Footprint study (Berlin), and over the years since then, there have been conversations about one day embarking on the Creative Footprint Sydney. 

“It is a testament to the leadership of the NSW Minister for Music and the Nighttime Economy, the NSW 24-Hour Economy Commissioner, and so many key stakeholders in NSW that Sydney can measure and better understand the city’s music spaces, communities and the ways challenges can be overcome in this exciting new chapter.”
