UPCOMING EVENTS

Brisbane Conversations is a free public forum hosted by UDAL to explore some of the pressing challenges confronting cities around the world. Underpinning each Conversation is a global lens of sustainability [social, environmental and economic].

 

The aim of these conversations is to better understand the causes of things, in order to effect positive change in our cities, especially with regard to widening disadvantage and social exclusion.

Brisbane Conversation #6 will focus on an issue that affects more than 60% of the Australian population - access to high quality, accessible and affordable housing in our cities and regions.

UDAL invites you to come along and engage in a vibrant and enlightening conversation, framed by different perspectives: from an economist, to community housing providers, developers, architects, a lawyer, the former CEO of the International Federation for Housing and Planning and the QLD State Government Architect.

Join in conversation with our most diverse range of speakers to date and help us understand in greater depth the causes, challenges and solutions to delivering long term, high quality and affordable housing within our growing region.

Wednesday 24 March 5:30PM - 8:00PM. 

Artisan 45 King Street, Bowen Hills. QLD.
