Scenes From Sydney: What's On Your Social Calendar?

By Jaclyn Carlson The Sydney creative scene has been bursting at the seams lately with book launches, birthday events and other celebrations of creativity – it’s enough to keep a girl's social calendar full!  I’m here this month to report back on a few events that caught my eye as well as a few upcoming gatherings that you’ll certainly want to keep an eye on…

One of Sydney’s finest gatherings of creative minds and visionaries gathers throughout May & June as part of the Vivid Sydney or more specifically, the Vivid Ideas Exchange.  This year I can't wait to check out an event with 3 creative female bloggers entitled - We Blog The City on May 25 - don't miss it!
