Event description

Description

Urban areas are of central importance to Indigenous communities in Australia today. Urban development practices do not often acknowledge or include Indigenous values. Changing those practices would allow cities and towns in Australia to reflect and celebrate them as Indigenous places.This will require new ways of thinking about engagement with Indigenous communities.

This workshop is an opportunity to critically consider some of the challenges and problems with existing models of engagement, gain a greater understanding of how Indigenous communities are seeking to be partners in good sustainable urban practice, and be part of developing new methods and approaches for urban practitioners to build meaningful engagement with Indigenous communities.

This event is most suited for urban practitioners or policy makers with a focus on urban environments/planning/development.

The event is hosted by RMIT Centre for Urban Research in partnership with Indigenous Architecture and Design Victoria and Arup. You will hear about cutting-edge research on urban policy and Indigenous engagement, learn from Indigenous partners and contribute to developing new innovative approaches for better relationships between urban practice and Indigenous communities.

Tickets are limited. If tickets are no longer available, express interest via email to lauren.arabena@rmit.edu.au as spots might become available closer to the event.
