Extraordinary Aussie Women, Unsung Heroes and Formidable Destinations Celebrated at Hyatt Regency Sydney This March

February 22, 2021 Hotel News No Comments

Hyatt Regency Sydney will host two photographic exhibitions and a host of star-studded events throughout the month of March to recognise and celebrate the amazing resilience and remarkable courage shown by our nation, as portrayed by a collection of images of well-known personalities, unsung heroes, communities and landscapes that have endured human struggle, heartache & anguish.

The celebrations will kick off with the launch of Classic Agenda Heroes 2021, a stunning hard copy book launched to coincide with International Women’s Day, that encapsulates the stories of some extraordinary Aussie women whose courage and survival helped define us through some of our darkest times and is a time capsule of images capturing the calamitous events of recent times- bushfires, floods, drought and COVID-19.

Recognisable contributors to this year’s book include Celeste Barber (Author and Comedian), Maggie Beer (Cook, Food Author & Restaurateur), Sam Bloom (World Champion Canoeist), Sam Kerr (Soccer Star, former Matilda’s Captain and Young Australian of the Year), Ellie Cole (Paralympic Swimmer & Wheelchair Basketball Player), Cate Campbell (Australian Swimmer), Lauren Parker (Elite Para-Triathlete), Wendy McCarthy AO (Australian businesswoman), Pip Harrison (Head of Tourism Australia), Dame Quintin Bryce (Former Governor General) and Sandra Sully, Editor and co-founder of the AGENDA book initiative.

This year the book also shares the stories of a group of extraordinary women who have been the invisible backbone of our nation. “These women represent the tens of thousands, just like them, who have all simply put their heads down, without accolade or fanfare, and got on with the job at hand” says Sandra Sully. “They are the indestructible thread that is the lifeblood of our communities, yet their kinship and enduring spirit have enriched us all.”

Awe-inspiring unsung heroes include Cecily Powell; a 91 years young Rural Fire Service volunteer, Victoria Harrison; Royal Flying Doctor Service Pilot, Anpanuwa ‘Joyce’ Crombie and Aulpunda ‘Jean’ Barr-Crombie, Two Talking Sisters- the fashion world’s newest creatives, Dana Mitchell; Owner/ Operator of Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park which experienced the largest wildlife rescue operations in Australia in one place at one time last year, and Erin Boutros & Eleanor Baillieu of Empty Esky campaign, to name a few.

Not content with just capturing people’s formidable journeys, the book and live photography exhibitions will also feature a selection of stunning images from the ‘Girt by Sea’ collection which circumnavigated Australia by plane capturing some of Australia’s beautiful, yet sometimes unforgiving landscapes. “This drive of discovery has led to what I believe to be the most unique, fascinating and captivating set of pictures that you will ever see of our great Country” sayJason Mclean from Canon Australia.

 Celebrations will commence with a glass of Pommery Champagne on Friday 5 March 2021 where Hyatt Regency Sydney’s sun-drenched Atrium will be the backdrop for a Long-Table Luncheon for 100 people hosted by Sandra Sully, with special guests and Classic Agenda Heroes 2021 contributors in attendance. On Monday 8th March 2021, Hyatt Regency Sydney will host an International Women’s Day Champagne Morning Tea celebration in its Lobby Bar to showcase the CLASSIC AGENDA HEROES 2021 book & exhibition and Girt by Sea exhibition. This will see the lobby level of the hotel transformed into a gallery of stunning images from this year’s highly anticipated book; shot by acclaimed photographers Waded and Publisher Phil Harte, and the Girt By Sea exhibition shot by Tony Hewitt FAIPP & Denis Glennon AO. The events and exhibitions are a collaboration between Hyatt Regency Sydney and Harte International with support from Commonwealth Bank, Tourism Australia, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, Pommery Champagne, Thrifty, Victorinox and Canon Australia.

Jane Lyons, Hyatt Regency Sydney General Manager, said the hotel was excited to celebrate and support inspirational women and communities, especially the unsung heroes who have navigated unprecedented times with unwavering comradery and spirit. We are delighted to provide a platform for people to learn about and recognise their efforts as well as the hardiness of our nation and its people.

“We pride ourselves on supporting women in the workplace every day of the year, but it’s nice to formally mark the occasion and partner with CLASSIC AGENDA HEROES 2021 to once again celebrate the achievements of women in a range of fields and from diverse backgrounds, particularly following a year requiring such fortitude and strength” she said.

CLASSIC AGENDA HEROES 2021 is available to purchase at Hyatt Regency Sydney for $100, from 1 – 31 March 2021 or online through Women’s Legal Services Queensland: click here

The CLASSIC AGENDA HEROES 2021 and GIRT BY SEA photography exhibitions will be on display throughout the month of March (1-31 March 2021) at the lobby level of Hyatt Regency Sydney, free of charge, and everyone is invited to come and view them.
