Just a few weeks ago, Surry Hills was starting to pick up momentum. Light rail construction was finally behind us and lock out laws were no longer.
No one could have predicted what we're all going through now. And it's far from over.
The Surry Hills Creative Precinct is responding to COVID-19 by building a permanent online live streaming platform for Surry Hills.
Surry Hills Live will keep our community connected. It will ensure Surry Hills businesses are front and centre of people's minds. It will be pandemic-proof. It will set us all up for a prosperous recovery phase.
This is an opportunity to reach new and much larger audiences than ever before - now and well into the future.
Inspired by the enormously successful online pivot of our live music activation, the Creative Precinct is evolving into a high-end community live-stream broadcaster - and you're invited to be centre stage.
Join our alliance and help us apply for City of Sydney grant funding to turn this vision into a reality.
Anyone can watch anything online.
But it's harder to find a true sense of community. We can no longer stumble upon neighbourly business owners as we ramble down our street.
But we can still tap into the human qualities that define our neighbourhood. We can celebrate the diverse aspects of our community that make Postcode 2010 unique. We can inhabit the same shared online space. And inspire one other through discussion, creative expression, and entertainment.
This is hyper-local online content. It does not attempt to imitate what we have in the real world, nor compete with established entertainment platforms.
Surry Hills Live builds on the things we love about our neighbourhood and and strengthens our togetherness.
Keep your venue going online - when when it's not possible top open. Put your music organisation front and centre by getting involved in Surry Hills Live.
Our live streams are the best quality in Sydney and thanks to high-end sound and camera equipment and professional audio engineers, camera operators and directors. There are many ways to make sure you're the focus.
As a hyper-local online activation, Surry Hills Live offers a powerful platform to engage a loyal, high-intent customer base.
Stream the personality behind your business into peoples homes. Work with us to create engaging content that brings raving fans.
Find brand exposure that will translate to real followers and - when the real world opens back up - lead to real footfall and sales.
Surry Hills Live already attracts 10k+ viewers each week who come for the live music.
The next phase extends Surry Hills Live as an infotainment platform that supports business.
City of Sydney is providing $72 million in COVID support funding.
