Crescent Institute's Vision is to open tomorrow to everyone through inclusive professional learning and engagement opportunities with Australia’s political, business and cultural leaders on topics of national importance.


Crescent Institute exists to:

  • Host high calibre learning events with Australia’s leaders in an inclusive environment
  • Foster relationships to generate ideas and thought leadership on current economic, social, cultural and academic issues
  • Advocate the value of engagement, education and mentorship to professionals from diverse backgrounds


Founded in 2000 as the Crescent Club, the Institute has hosted more than 4,000 participants to engage with and learn from Prime Ministers, Premiers, business, cultural and religious leaders. The events are hosted in corporate venues in our major CBDs throughout each year.
