Two leading practitioners within the international ‘tactical’ or ‘adaptive’ urbanism network – Dr Ryan Reynolds and Mike Fisher – are offering placemaking forums and intensive workshops here in Queensland in July.

Through a combination of presentations and practical workshops, you’ll hear about how governments and entrepreneurs of all types are working together to unleash innovation, and how such partnerships are changing the model of community-government relationships.

Focussing on real examples and first-hand experience from Christchurch, Adelaide and beyond, these are intensive and hands-on sessions set up to inspire and equip participants to lead change in their places. 

WHO: Dr Ryan Reynolds, the entrepreneurial founder of not-for-profits and companies in post-quake Christchurch (including the massively influential Gap Filler); and Mike Fisher, who worked with Ryan and others as Urban Regeneration Team Leader at Christchurch City Council, and who went on to lead the City of Adelaide’s Placemaking programme.

WHAT: A range of sessions are available. There are forums open to anyone, as well as intensive workshop sessions specifically for key stakeholders including Councils, arts and community organisations, business associations and/or nonprofits – or a combination of them all!

WHERE: Bundaberg, Toowoomba, Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Gladstone, and Rockhampton.
