Candy gave so much to Sydney as an artist and I am glad that the City could play a small role in this final year of her remarkable work and life.

Candy has been a tenant in one of our William Street Creative Live/Work Spaces since May last year, where she was working on a number of projects including a new collection of poetry.

Candy Royalle was a Lebanese-Palestinian Australian queer storyteller who was much-loved and admired in Sydney’s performance poetry scene. She was a strong and powerful performer who last performed with her band The Freed Radicals three weeks ago.
