Event description

Description

Launceston’s central city is changing in response to a combination of global and local trends. Under the overall banner of the Launceston City Deal, a number of initiatives over the next few years provide the opportunity to guide the CBD away from business-as-usual to become a more vibrant and productive regional centre.

This forum brings together practitioners from business/retail, arts/culture, build environment/design, and education systems to discuss the future of the central city, examine the global trends and local initiatives that are driving change, and establish a vision of what it might be possible to create.

Panellists:

  • Natalie De Vito, Consultant to the arts and cultural sector, co-creator and former Director of the Junction Arts Festival
  • Timothy Hill, Principal, Architect and Designer, Partners Hill
  • Dr Louise Grimmer, Lecturer in Marketing, Retail Researcher and Founder and Convenor of the Tasmanian Retail Network
  • Professor David Adams, Pro-Vice Chancellor of Community Partnerships and Regional Development, University of Tasmania
  • Facilitator: Andrew Pitt, Neil Pitt’s Menswear, Chair of Cityprom and University of Tasmania

Presented in partnership with the Northern Young Professionals Network.
