Placemaking NSW was set up to lead the creation of great places and deliver better outcomes for the people of NSW from the treasured places under its remit.
Joanna Savill has been appointed as the new Creative Director to the Placemaking NSW team (shared with Greater Sydney Parklands). Joanna will work with the new Placemaking vision and the refresh of its night-time and visitor economy activity at The Rocks, Darling Harbour, The Station in Newcastle and at Sydney Olympic Park.
Joanna is well-known to many with a background in media, the visitor economy, engagement, and partnerships and brilliantly suited to shape great place activations. Her work with leading major national food festivals and events is something that will apply to all the Placemaking NSW precincts including Sydney Olympic Park.
It will be an important job and will help businesses in our precincts recover from COVID lockdowns and welcome the community back to our places.
