The Fifth Estate's - The Green Rebellion Goes West

To honour this new centre of gravity the Sydney Architecture Festival will this year launch at Parramatta. In partnership with the Festival, The Fifth Estate is hosting a rebellious ferry ride up the river to Parramatta for the festival launch event.

On the way we will host an interactive and lively forum to bring better understanding of the west and its opportunities to a wider audience. An expert panel and an audience seeded with hand picked experts from planning, development, government, community and creatives will ensure the Green Rebellion can craft a set of agenda items to find ways that the boom in Sydney’s West can be more sustainable, better designed and offer more affordable alternative housing choices than might otherwise be the case.
