House of Riot is excited to announce its pilot event series On The Floor presented in partnership with Vibewire. 
Running bimonthly in the lead up to next year's federal election, On The Floor will bring together 5 panellists to debate the issues young Australians care about. 

Our first On The Floor will look at the future of Sydney’s nightlife, and is going down on Tuesday the 22nd of September, hosted by Hack's Tom Tilley.

With the newly imposed lock-out laws, smoking, license and live music restrictions and of course the standard drug laws, Sydney’s cultural nightlife is changing, and fast. What's it going to look like in 4 years - and what would we want it to look like?


Submit your questions for our panellists to OnTheFloor@thehouseofriot.com or tweet your questions to us at @thehouseofriot and @vibewire

Attendees may submit multiple questions.


In the pursuit of making change not noise, at the end of the event we will be creating a submission form the panellists and audience comments to be published online and shared with relevant ministers and organisations.


Come along as we go deep.

Samantha Torres - Office of Liquor, gaming and Racing Samantha joined the Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing in January 2014 as the Director, Policy & Strategy and since that time has worked to develop and deliver integrated regulatory and policy reforms that appropriately balance our stakeholder needs for the community of NSW.  She has significant experience in policy work, including program evaluation, in regulatory environments, both in the public and private sectors, in often contentious and technical areas of regulation.  Prior to joining OLGR she spent over 7 years in NSW and Commonwealth regulatory agencies, most notably, the NSW Food Authority and the FairWork Ombudsman (as it is now known). Her private sector experience includes project management and delivery of regulatory compliance and assurance programs across complex, often geographically diverse, businesses. Samantha's varied public/private background and solid regulatory experience in dynamic and often volatile environments has enabled her to not only understand the challenges faced by the sectors we regulate, but also be able to work with stakeholders across our sectors to develop robust, risk-based policy solutions.  Her role is to drive the development of robust, cohesive policy and legislative reforms that deliver positive outcomes for the community of NSW.
