PASSION PURPOSE MEANING – Arts Activism in Western Sydney: book launch

Western Sydney is the new black. It’s not just federal politicians who are discovering the dynamism of the communities that make up around half of Sydney’s total population. PHA NSW member Katherine Knight has been in the thick of cultural developments in the area for decades. This experience has culminated in the publication of her history of arts activism in Sydney’s west.

PASSION PURPOSE MEANING ― Arts Activism in Western Sydney records the rich variety of artistic expression from the many cultures represented in the region, arguing that what is being called the demographic centre of Sydney is also emerging as its cultural heart.Katherine’s book, published by Halstead Press, will be launched by David Borger, western Sydney director of the Sydney Business Chamber on Monday, March 11, at 6pm, Riverside Theatres, Parramatta. The theatres are sponsoring the launch and PHA NSW members are invited, but RSVP is essential to reserve your seats. Please RSVP by Friday March 8, to Riverside Marketing on 8839 3356 or email

Capacity may be reached prior to RSVP deadline so please RSVP as soon as possible.
