Alvaro Maz on Creative Suburbs - Thursday 9 May 2013

Date: Thursday 9 May, 2013 
Time: 7.00pm
Venue: Elisabeth Murdoch Building, Victorian College of the Arts (Southbank campus), 234 St Kilda Road, Melbourne

Last month’s panel discussion raised questions around how we occupy space – and the problems with existing planning and governance structures that limit and sometimes prohibit socially just access to space.

To continue this conversation, next month we have Alvaro Maz from Creative Suburbs – talking about ways to empower communities and individuals to shape the city they live in.

Alvaro is a former international development devotee interested in spreading ideas, examining and connecting places and people – when he’s not feeding his chocolate addiction. Originally from Colombia, he now lives, eats and blogs in Melbourne. Alvaro is also the founder of Creative Suburbs, a community consultation platform established to share and support ideas to enhance the built environment in suburban Melbourne.

Refreshments provided/gold coin donations welcome!
