Lendlease releases campaign as love letter to Barangaroo

Property and construction outfit Lendlease has released a campaign titled ‘Sydney Isn’t Sydney Without You’, to promote the Sydney suburb of Barangaroo via Authority Creative.

The campaign sees movement artist Christopher Jhureea dance through the streets of Barangaroo following the easing of restrictions.

The 60-second spot the video opens with a traditional smoking ceremony performed by First Nations Songman Matthew Doyle. Jhureea then moves through Barangaroo, showcasing cafes, bars and restaurants along the way.

The Streets of Barangaroo and Darling Square retail marketing manager Jacqui Stanton said: “With this love letter, we wanted to celebrate the return of Sydneysiders to the city, pay our respects to the First Nations people on whose land we stand, and honour the hardworking hospitality and retail workforce who have re-opened their doors with a smile. Places are made by people and seeing the streets come back to life has highlighted our vibrant and dynamic spirit and culture.”

The campaign will be television, catch-up TV and YouTube. In addition, a competition will run over the next four weeks with thousands of dollars in dining vouchers on offer to welcome Sydneysiders back home.
