The Visible City: Week Three

Community-led Renewal

The Visible City series brings together international, inspirational and sometimes radical perspectives with contemporary case studies in urban renewal. How can these new perspectives and recent case studies inform Canberra’s ambitious CBD renewal as it transitions form and function?

How do we make visible – within the city centre – the hopes and dreams of the community in an ongoing and tangible way?

Don’t miss this important public conversation featuring:

  • Anne Ouellette, Daily tous les jours (Montreal), best known for work in public spaces, where passing crowds are invited to play a critical role in the transformation of their environment and their relationships
  • Annalisa Rosso, freelance design journalist and independent curator based in Milan. Rosso recently curated the seventh edition of Operae, Independent Design Festival in Turin
  • Catherine Townsend – ACT Government Architect.

Each forum will be hosted by Alex Sloan – an award winning journalist, broadcaster and advocate for design excellence with an abiding interest in planning and architecture in the Canberra context.

The Visible City series is presented as part of the 2018 DESIGN Canberra festival. This forum is supported by the ACT Government through the City Renewal Authority’s City Grants Program.
