Out There Summit 2018

The 2018 Out There Summit once again brings together an impressive line-up of speakers across government, arts, sport, community and business to explore and debate the big ideas in Western Sydney.

This year’s event has been designed with a focus on education, health and social inclusion, specifically, how the policies and projects that are being rolled out in these areas are helping shape the next leadership class, stimulate the urban renewal of our cities and strengthen the region’s capacity to deliver the necessary jobs, homes and amenity for a rapidly growing population.
