About Us

SydneyTalks is an independent online listing of interesting public talks and discussions in Sydney. We feature talks by artists, authors, experts, scientists and advocates.

Who is behind SydneyTalks?
SydneyTalks was established in 2004 by Georgie Vestey and Jane Madgwick. From 2008 to 2017 the online guide was managed by Christine Maher and Sally Stock. From July 2017, sisters Meredith and Louisa Hall took over as the editors of SydneyTalks.

How is Sydney Talks funded?
SydneyTalks is an advertisement free service, and there is no fee for listing events. The editors support the free flow of ideas, information and knowledge in society, and celebrate the vital function of public talks in a lively urban culture. SydneyTalks will not sell information about subscribers or users to anyone.

How are talks selected for SydneyTalks?
SydneyTalks is a curated list. The editors are not obliged to publish all talks submitted, and reserve the right to edit entries accepted for publication. We prioritise talks hosted by reputable organisations and by speakers who are considered experts in their field.
