Overview:

The creation of authentic and equitable places is challenging, whether you are reinventing an existing environment or starting from scratch in new communities. This challenge only grows when faced with multi-billion-dollar investments that need to be commercially successful, yet community and people driven. 
 
Join us at the Australasian Placemaking Symposium 2021 to explore how the latest principles and innovation in placemaking are being used in Australasia’s largest developments and community shaping place projects. Featuring top placemaking, planning and urban renewal leaders, this 2-day event is the perfect platform to share your experiences, network with key decision makers and collaborate to drive the future of place-based design & development.  
 
Don’t miss your chance to hear from Australasia’s largest community shaping projects including Melbourne Docklands, Barangaroo South, Fisherman’s Bend, Cross River Rail and Christchurch SALT District.
