T Australia: The New York Times Style Magazine was launched in Australia by publisher and editor Katarina Kroslakova earlier this year both online and in print, but this week, the brand officially launched at the beautiful Chiswick restaurant in the leafy eastern suburbs of Sydney. The morning event included a preview of T Australia’s upcoming event series, T Presents and a guest list that included some of the most important thought-leaders in the arts industry.
T: Presents is an intimate series of intelligent conversation about the challenges and opportunities for the cultural industries. The goal is to stimulate positive change by building a deep and meaningful dialogue between Australia’s leaders of style and culture industries with international leaders, and the wider community, on issues that really matter.
This first panel was dedicated to “The Future of Culture”, in light of the tumultuous events of the past year. Led by Katarina Kroslakova and Director of 1858 Arts Advisory, Viola Raikhel, panelists included six highly successful leaders in the art world: sculptor Anna-Wili Highfield, film producer Cody Greenwood, Creative Director of the Australian Ballet David Hallberg, Film Maker Gracie Otto, President of Eleven Music Management, John Watson, and Musician Mark Lizotte.
