Melbourne Design Week
March 21, 2022, 6:30-8:00pm
Students, teachers and parents from Collingwood College have curated an exhibition of what they have discovered, made and discussed, during a series of workshops around their neighbourhood in Collingwood. They have been guided in this process by volunteer urbanists from UDF and guest multidisciplinary artist, Marta Figueiredo, who are passionate about giving community groups the skills they need to think big and participate in the change they see around them.
A panel discussion led by Katherine Sundermann with generous contributions from our panellists – Alison Whitten, Tim Riley, Shantra Road and Andy Fergus. The panellists shared their ideas for involving citizen’s in the design of the city and the ambitions to move from ‘tick-the-box’ community engagement to genuine citizen-led design.
