An initiative of the City of Melbourne, the Melbourne Conversations series have been running FREE discussions that explore issues and topics of social, political or cultural importance to Melbourne and Melburnians. To date, 270 conversations with more than 800 guest panellists and over 80,000 people have been organised. Presented by Urban Built Heritage International Conference and supported by Future Leaders and Knowledge Melbourne, Melbourne Conversations will be addressing the topic of 'Urban Heritage and New Architecture' on 29 September.
You are invited to join and have your say in this FREE discussion with a panel of experts. They include Professor Kate Darian-Smith (The University of Melbourne), international guest Professor Andrew Saint (Senior Advisor, English Heritage, General Editor Survey of London), Rob Moore (City Design Division), Dr Kate Shaw (ARC Future Fellow, The University of Melbourne) and David Rolls (Group Executive, Commercial Development, Mirvac). The agenda focuses on how Melbourne can value urban heritage and embrace exciting new architecture at the same time? This topic of creating a sustainable '20 minute city' excites planners, academics and architects.
