Ipswich City Council is excited to bring you Building Better Blocks and Neighbourhoods, a placemaking and city shaping thought leadership event with some practical hands-on experience.

As part of their Australian tour Better Block will be showcasing their innovative process to activate public spaces and bring people together. Supported by a strong line up of placemaking experts the event will inspire and energise you to think outside the box.

The placemaking movement is gaining momentum here in Queensland, so if you are wanting to expand your knowledge, learn and understand the different approaches and processes, then this is the event for you.

In addition to the learnings, there will also be opportunities to meet and network with like-minded people.

The event will conclude with a panel discussion with the four experts, then it’s time to translate the principles and theory learnt during the day into action with some hands-on placemaking.
