About Western Sydney
Greater Western Sydney is one of the most lively and liveable regions in Australia, a prosperous convergence point for entertainment, business and recreation. Boasting a soaring population and major growth in transportation, residential and commercial projects Sydney’s West is rapidly expanding at an unprecedented rate.
A Booming Region
$45 billion is committed to major infrastructure projects including West Connex, the Parramatta Light Rail, the Aerotropolis and University in Liverpool including the new Western Sydney Airport which will welcome 5 million passengers annually.
People and Places
With a population that is set to soar to 3.5 million by 2036, our people and cultural spend will soon outweigh other regions of Sydney. With 63% of all new homes in NSW being built in Western Sydney, the time has never been more right to deliver a world class commercial and arts venue that will satisfy this growing and engaged audience.
Why a Theatre for Western Sydney?
Despite Greater Western Sydney’s priority growth region status and a population of enthusiastic consumers that is increasing in white collar dominance, Greater Western Sydney only has 2 ͞performance arts seats͟ per 1000 residents, well below international standards and what the a market of this size calls for.
The existing spend for culture and arts, population growth and preference to spend less time travelling to venues makes a clear case for building a dynamic, premium venue for Western Sydney.
