Each February in Sydney marks one of the most significant cultural festivals in the world. In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, Authority Creative was engaged by Lendlease to bring vibrancy and love to The Streets of Barangaroo. The installation was designed by local Sydney artist and illustrator Lauren Webster and unmistakable to her style.

“The Streets of Barangaroo is home to a highly curated and well-considered collection of stores and services, designed to make the new precinct as self-sufficient and convenient as possible. In fact, there is considerable science and research behind this wonderfully choreographed neighbourhood.”

Our team installed each delicate motif individually over the course of three days; ‘apple of my eye’ ‘heart’s on fire’ ‘somewhere over the rainbow’ ‘'til death do us part’ and ‘star-crossed lovers’ to name a few. The temporary public artwork formed an integral part of the annual celebration down at Barangaroo.

As always, we thank Lendlease and The Streets of Barangaroo for entrusting us to explore such enriching and fulfilling creative projects. And, of course, to our amazing artist and friend Lauren Webster for bringing this ideas to life in such a magical way.

We are proud to be involved in honouring the power and beauty of diversity. 

For the community,


with love.
