This is Public—RE/DISCOVER your City

Add to Itinerary


Join us for This is Public: RE/DISCOVER your City where we explore the buildings, places and spaces that make Melbourne special, connect people to place and spark curiosity.

Hear about the challenges and opportunities facing our city through the lenses of heritage, housing, place, and community, and discover how design can address critical issues shaping Melbourne's form, identity, and future.

What's On

We'll hear from Open House Brno about their European festival, before returning to Melbourne for different perspectives on balancing our city's changing needs, imagining its future and ensuring it remains a vibrant and unique place we all feel connected to.
