Darling Harbour Sign City

A free, outdoor exhibition exploring signs that have been lost in translation to great comic effect

Edinburgh, Dubai and Copenhagen have all had a turn, and now Sydney is set to host the latest installation of Signspotting, a free, outdoor exhibition of weird and wonderful signs spotted by Doug Lansky in his travels, or sent to him by visitors from all over the world. Lansky has seen signs that range from the comic to the ridiculous, and over 100 best are on show at Darling Harbour where visitors will get a taste for global miscommunication at its strangest.

This is a family-friendly event and is open all hours, but if you bring your primary-school aged little'uns down between 11am and 3pm, until Mon Apr 25 there will be an interactive kids construction zone hosting drop-in workshops led by local artists Andrea Davies and Jess Cook. It might get messy but they'll be safe as houses and prepped for play in their high vis vests and hard hats.

Signspotting, Cockle Bay South, running until Sun May 1.

Sign City Kids’ Workshops, running until Mon Apr 25, 11am-3pm.
