Melbourne Conversations | Heritage and development innovation: making Melbourne a world leader

The City of Melbourne is hosting an important discussion about heritage and growth in the city.

Inner Melbourne is experiencing development and growth to meet contemporary needs and maintain prosperity. In this discussion a panel of experts from architecture, heritage and planning backgrounds will discuss if Melbourne can balance a need to preserve our built heritage with our need to develop as a city. The discussion will also consider a broader definition of heritage that takes in cultural identity, memory and usage of urban spaces and places? Hear from the experts and have your say.

Time: 6pm to 7.30pm – entry from 5.30pm
