CatalystWest 2019

Last year, with a line-up of provocative speakers, innovative hacks and interactive displays, CatalystWest sold-out weeks ahead of the event. This year will be even bigger. Don’t miss out! Act fast to secure your spot.

Now in its second year, Western Sydney University’s CatalystWest forum will see 350 collaborators from the community, government and industry come together at Parramatta Square to envisage the region’s newest city at the Western Sydney Aerotropolis.

Together from pre to post-event, and at the forum itself, we will transform the way cities are conceived. With provocative, agile and interactive speakers, we’ll confront what’s possible when we shape a city collaboratively.

Local and international experts will share their visions of cities. We will collectively create a model of a city that is truly ‘liveable’; a city that is inclusive of women, ethnic communities, diverse viewpoints and different understandings of what the intersection of built-form and imagination makes possible.

Lively panel sessions will be augmented by breakout digital hacks and ideation. Participants will be able to populate VR and real-time AV renderings of cityscapes prior to and at the event.

And the work doesn’t end after 7 November. Western’s researchers will shape CatalystWest’s outcomes into policy statements that we will collectively take to policymakers. This is not a talkfest. CatalystWest is building a city over here.

Join us at this highly interactive, purposeful and transformative forum where Australia’s fastest-growing region makes its own future.
