Dear IAG’ers/Urb-Geog’ers
Forwarding the message below re the Festival of Urbanism on behalf of Prof. Nicole Gurran – see below for details.
Apologies for any x-posting.

Dear friends and colleagues
See below for an invitation to this year’s Festival of Urbanism – a two week series of free, online events between 13-24 September, jointly hosted by the universities of Sydney and Monash, and involving many of our wider urban research and REPLAN community plus international speakers. All sessions combine speakers from research and practice and will be live streamed. Given the difficulties we all face teaching this semester, hopefully there’ll be material across the program that could be suitable for you to work into your own curriculums or at the very least, which will be of interest to your students and colleagues.
Warm regards,
Nicole

The Festival of ‘endangered’ Urbanism

Cities and regions in Australia and across the world are experiencing existential threats – from the global pandemic to social division, economic turmoil, and deepening climate risk. Foundational assumptions underpinning urban settlements, planning and governance in post-colonial countries are increasingly questioned by First Nations people, while ongoing harms to Indigenous communities and heritage continue. The spatial logic of Australia’s cities is being disrupted by public health concerns, new patterns of working, and the demand for space. House price inflation, the shortage of affordable rental housing, and real estate driven urban renewal processes are dividing communities and driving long term renters to precarity and squalor as gentrification and online residential tourism remake iconic neighbourhoods.

Have we reached ‘peak urbanism’ or will cities recover from these crises? How should policy makers, planners, and advocates catalyse paradigm change, enabling resurgent forms of urbanism and new approaches to governance, infrastructure, housing, heritage, or design?

The 8th Festival of Urbanism will be a forum for debating these themes, featuring a wide diversity of speakers and free events across Melbourne (3-18 Sep) and Sydney (20-24 Sep).

Speakers include: Dr Sophia Maalsen (chair), Dr Kurt Iveson, Prof Gaby Ramia, Dr Amelia Thorpe, Dr Pranita Shrestha

A range of actors, from elites to the excluded, get things done by working around the laws and codes that are meant to govern urban life.

Wed 22 Sep, 12 - 1.30 pm, Online
Speakers include: Dr Dallas Rogers (chair), Han Aulby, Sue Weatherley MPIA, Michael West

Endangered adolescence: are public spaces dead to teens?
Fri 22 Sep, 12 - 1.15 pm, Online
Speakers include: Dr Jennifer Kent (chair), Kate Luckraft, Prof Karen Malone, Prof Amanda Third

Teens have found new public spaces on-line, while children’s ability to access quality place spaces and recreation areas is highly variable across Australia’s cities and regions. This session asks whether online spaces are the new public realm for young people and how urban planners and policy makers can make real space in the city for the next generation coming of age.
