We discuss a wide range of topics, including Barry’s area of particular interest, the measurement of the value of our social and cultural infrastructure, including the arts and sports sectors – and have worked closely with groups like the Screen Producers Association of Australia, SA Film Corporation, Adelaide Festival and Australian Music Association.

This is an interesting discussion about the value of Arts and cultural events on economic indicators such as jobs, as well as the cultural impact on building more liveable and enjoyable cities.
