COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

I have been involved in, and organised a number of events relating to urban design initiatives, community engagement and consultation. 

These included the 'Ideas Fiesta', a 3 week community consultation and event-filled festival for Brisbane City Council which engaged with over 16,000 people via street parties, social media, and temporary urban transformation to stimulate discussion and feedback about the new Brisbane City Centre Master Plan. 

Other events have included the 'Green Garden Lunchtimes' week-long outdoor healthy living, and sustainable festival which I initiated and project managed for City of London. An excellent challenge as a lack of any budget or funding for the event meant working closely with local businesses, other partners and the community to create this programme of events.

In 2014 I also worked on a small team to deliver the launch event for 3000 Acres first prototype urban agriculture garden in Melbourne, as part of the Sustainable Living Festival.
