Home > Cooks River > The Cooks River goes to Vivid!

Together with our partners Sydney Water and A New Normal Sydney, we’re presenting the future of urban waterway restoration at Vivid Sydney. Using the Muddy Creek Naturalisation Project as a catalyst for a new normal along the Cooks River. The project is featured along with 19 other bold visions for urban transformation at the New Normal Prototype Hub on The Goods Line.

Part-gallery, part-pavilion, part-meeting place, you’re invited to immerse yourself in this optimistic vision of a more sustainable, self-sufficient Sydney. The exhibition will be on display at the New Normal Prototype Hub in the Harwood Building car park from May 24 to June 15

A New Normal

A New Normal Sydney takes a ‘do-tank’ approach that translates good intentions, ambitious targets and collective will power, creativity and intelligence into practical, tangible and scalable projects necessary to transform our streets, neighbourhoods and cities from consumers (of water & energy that create loads of waste) to self-sufficient producers of water, energy that send zero waste to landfill. Leaving us with a city that will never run out. 

This is about fast-tracking solutions through the rapid deployment of pilot projects. This implementation approach offers evidence and insight that can help inform government policy, regulation and incentives, and a way that is understood, supported  by, and benefits the community, private and public sectors.
