Neighbourhood house project in Timor Leste - 7th June, 2007

Public lecture on the past and future of a neighbourhood house project in Timor Leste.
Thursday 7th June, 7pm onwards
at RMIT building 50, Orr St, Carlton.

The cities of Yarra and Darebin in Victoria developed a Friendship Agreement with the province and township of Baucau following Timor Leste's independence. At next month’s words night, members of Friends of Baucau and Yarra and Darebin councils will speak about a recent building project in Timor Leste. With the help of agencies including Australian Volunteers International and the Rotary Clubs’ Roofing Project, a building damaged during the independence violence was restored and established as a neighbourhood house.

Friends of Baucau are planning to restore a building adjacent to the Buka Hatane neighbourhood house and on the night will be presenting details of the new project and happy to speak to anyone interested in getting involved.

Speakers will include Clare Murrell, Project Officer at Friends of Baucau and Roderick McIvor, Manager of Social Policy at Darebin City Council. More details coming soon! In the meantime, please contact Eleanor for further information at eleanor@architectsforpeace.org

Refreshments and discussion will follow. This is a free public event, made possible by the time and effort contributed by speakers and members of Architects for Peace. A gold coin donation on the night helps to cover our overheads so that we can continue to provide an alternative forum for issues concerning the built environment and social justice.
