Sydney Museum of Words will be showcasing words on loan from some of the great names of our generation, such as The Queen Her Majesty, Tony Abbott, Ghassan Hage, and Julian Assange. The exhibition will provide locals and tourists a collection of only the best words that Australia – and Sydney – has to offer.
SMOW invites people to spend time reflecting on words and their meanings outside of their every-day context. For example, even the word ‘Sydney’ has a rich meaning, deriving from Saint Denis who was a third-century French saint.

A reminder to all the zinesters out there:
The applications for Museum of Contemporary Art Australia Zine Fair 2014 close today!
The families within the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersexual (GLBTQI) communities are forming a new sociology, driving new understandings and redefining what makes a “family”.
The artists (including our previous participant Annie Magdalena Laerkesen) are responding to the phrase We Are Family to express their ideas of what is “family”. Some of the works are highly personal and intimate representations of their families while other works highlight ideas about the concept of family.
The Centre for Inner Excellence (CIE) the first women only co-working space and business hub has launched at The Rocks.
Catering to the unique work and life habits of women, the CIE will assist entrepreneurial women by providing fundamental office space services and innovative benefits to encourage business growth and sustainability.
The CIE will provide a supportive community and collective for female entrepreneurs and freelancers who want a space to work, connect and collaborate with peers. It will also offer a comfortable work space that is adaptable and designed to accommodate change.
By providing a supportive environment and a productive platform, the CIE hopes to promote work-life balance and encourage women to help one another move their business forward.
“There are a bunch of young Artists like me on the APY Lands. We have big plans about what will happen next with our art work and our Art Centres – the businesses we own. This gallery is about getting our young and emerging Artists work out there, in our own gallery. This is a young Anangu Artists project and is the first of its kind. Ngali-Kitikiti-ni mean’s give us room we’re coming through, which is exactly our plan…”
- Rhonda Unrupa Dick, Tjala Artist and Arts Worker, Winner of the 2013 ATSIAB Dreaming Awards and Amata Community Council Board Member
