Description

Who’s missing?
With Sue Salthouse
Sunday 9 September, 10.30AM to 12.00PM
Shop 4, Building 3.4, 1 Dairy Road, Fyshwick
Free though RSVP is essential


There are lots of things that can stop people from accessing urban spaces: Can you easily get around both walking and on wheels? Is there enough light at nighttime? It’s time to look around our cities and ask: Who’s missing? Who’s not able to participate? Who isn’t made to feel welcome, and why? Drawing on experience working across women’s rights and accessibility advocacy, Sue Salthouse will guide us in a discussion about the importance of inclusive spaces and what true urban diversity should really look like.

Please tell us your participation requirements when you RSVP.


SUE SALTHOUSE

Sue Salthouse has worked in social justice since 1996, playing an active role in the systemic advocacy for women with disabilities. Salthouse, who is a Canberra Citizen of the Year recipient, became a paraplegic as a result of an accident in 1995. The learning curve that followed was steep and physically challenging, but has ultimately led to a life of “new opportunity.” Salthouse runs her own consultancy and has worked extensively through civil society organisations and government to ensure that women with disabilities are fully included.


MOLONGLO GROUP

Molonglo are a Canberra-based developer that actively plans, designs, delivers and curates its projects. Its main focus in Canberra for the last 10 years has been the progressive restoration of NewActon, a precinct on the edge of the city centre that includes residential, retail, commercial and public realm. Molonglo’s process is often collaborative and cross-disciplinary, which allows for enormous fluidity, flexibility and disjunction in creative making. Their work hopes to help foster healthy, cohesive and tolerant societies.
