Meet the Aussie Mosque

While the earliest mosques in NSW were built in the inner-city suburbs of Sydney, around two-thirds are now located in western Sydney. Join the community of Sydney’s newest mosque — designed by Sydney architect Angelo Candalepas — and be one of the first to experience this modern masterpiece. We ask — is the mosque beginning to develop its own unique Australian identity? And can architecture build better cultural understanding between communities in multi-cultural Sydney?

Speakers:
Dr Zachariah Matthews | VP, Australian Islamic Mission.
Anjali Roberts | City of Parramatta.
Angelo Candalepas | Principal, Candalepas Associates. 
Husnia Underabi | Western Sydney University
