Ticket holders for the 2019 Global Cities After Dark forum are in for a treat as the line-up of international and local speakers are set to delve into some important developments and shine a much-needed light on the state of our nighttime economy.

To get you primed and ready, below are three unmissable sessions set to be presented at Sydney’s Eternity Playhouse on Friday, 15 November.


Time Out recently released its list of the 50 best things to do in the world right now. Brooklyn’s House of Yes nightclub came in at second. A creative collective and nightclub in Bushwick, Brooklyn, House of Yes is a sex-positive nightclub.

Said VICE: “Stepping into House of Yes is like entering an exciting new world. One filled with feathery, costumed performers, aerialists dangling from the high ceiling, scantily dressed caged dancers, and transformative themed sets. It’s a magical adult playground, where sexual freedom is encouraged and “enthusiastic consent” is required.” 

In their keynote, House of Yes’ Co-Founder and Creative Director Kae Burke, along with Cultural Director and Manager of the Consent Program Jacqui Rabkin, take us through their journey in building authentic creativity in a global city that is not without its challenges. They will dive deep into what has been in their secret recipe for going from a good business to a great business that has so much meaning in the community, and how they have combined different artistic mediums to tackle big ideas and big issues.
