agenda cultural

This is a meeting of professionals and academics from diverse backgrounds coming together to explore new ways of preventing crime, increasing safety and making places work better.

The unique structure of this conference is designed to deliver strategies and practical solutions to the problems you face in reducing crime. No matter what your tasks and responsibilities, the focus is on solutions! In addition to keynote talks by world leaders you will learn about current research and practice at the intersection of criminology and design. You will also have the chance to workshop real problems with experts. Best of all, you will leave Sydney with a network delivering ongoing support into the future.

Five streams - RetailUrban LivingLate Night EconomyTransport and Counter-terrorism - give attendees the opportunity to concentrate on issues of particular concern.

Join us in Sydney to meet the world specialists in your discipline and acquire the latest thinking in making places safer. This conference will change the way you approach crime prevention.


This first Design and Crime Conference aims to showcase innovative approaches to design for crime prevention. Developing design solutions to complex crime problems requires a collaborative design process that is flexible and dynamic, and which is focused on the desired outcomes – the kinds of environments we would like to achieve – rather than the problems that spoil the environments. This approach permits the emergence of a range of possible solutions that are unlikely to come to light with a problem-focused approach. 

This two-day conference will appeal to practitioners and academics from wide-ranging disciplines and professions including but not limited to: architecture, planning, urban design, housing, community services, criminology, social geography, environmental psychology, product design, urban tourism, visual communications, security personnel, politicians, developers, and managers of public buildings, retail outlets and transport.
The conference will highlight the achievements of the Design Out Crime movement and the success that designers and criminologists are having in working together to tackle complex crime issues. Following on from the conference proceedings are workshops exploring how design and criminology can work together to take on complex real life problems in each of the five related areas.
Join us as we break new ground in design and criminology.
