In partnership with EMC (Electronic Music Conference, Sydney), VibeLab brings you the return of Global Cities After Dark – a one-day and one-night forum focused on global night time culture and economy.
With the night being crucial to any city as a cultural and economic driver, Global Cities After Dark approaches nightlife from a holistic perspective, deeply exploring the pillars that are essential to supporting successful nightlife - creative industries being able to prosper and grow, music and art activating at night, transport and mobility, public health and safety, gastronomy, city planning and place making, legislation and regulatory process.
Global Cities After Dark 2018 is themed around collaboration - as it is through collaboration locally, nationally and internationally that solutions are found and executed for a positive and vibrant future at night.
2018 Global Cities After Dark extends its program over one day and one night, to include a welcome event and city tour on the evening of Monday 12 November. The forum runs from 9am - 7pm on Tuesday 13 November with an After Party running until 8:30pm. The forum presents keynotes from five international specialists from various fields in night time culture; a “NightCamp” group workshop hosted by the world’s most accomplished nightlife advocate; a keynote update from City of Sydney’s Nightlife & Creative Advisory Panel; and eight Expert Sessions deep diving into specialised aspects of night time culture working collaboratively in an interactive workshop environment.
