Description

Meet the Aussie mosque: speaker session

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 | Architect

Husnia Underabi | WSU
