About this Event

Join our panel of experts as they explore the ways in which clever design can contribute to community connection, resilience and social inclusion.

As we aspire to achieve the Geelong community’s 30-year vision for a clever and creative future, how do we harness our ambition to incubate innovative technology, demonstrate leadership in health, science and education, and accommodate start-ups and other business disruptors in ways that contribute to achieving a diverse, healthy and socially-connected community? How can we learn from our Wadawurrung leaders to ensure that their connections to the region are maintained, their connection to community strengthened and Indigenous knowledge applied to rethinking the design of our city?

Help our panel grapple with the important task of collaborating to design a human-centred Geelong that is accessible to all, values everyone and increases opportunities for our most vulnerable. As Australia’s first and only UNESCO City of Design, we are poised to build on our impressive design history and write the next chapter of our city’s creative identity.

Jefa Greenaway will be joined on the panel by Valli Morphett, CEO of CoDesign Studio, a social enterprise that specialises in place-making strategy and public space activation; Sae Ra Germaine Manager Digital Platforms at CAVAL, Vice-Chair Internet Australia and President of Linux Australia, and Peter Seamer, author of Breaking Point: The Future of Australian Cities, and former CEO of the Victorian Planning Authority and of Federation Square.
