Event description

Description

DenCITY + CommUNITY

Friday 16 - Sunday 18 March 2018

'good people and good architecture - all together'

This event has differentiated itself from the big impersonal architecture conferences, where participants often end up 'hanging out' with their friends, do not meet other people, and never see the guest speakers who are whisked off to VIP events. The 'all together' residential weekend format has ensured that all participants stay together and get a chance to meet each other and the guest speakers.

+ a 'conference' about cities, how we live there, how we can create communities - looking at precedents and possibilities for better urban housing - 'density with love' ??

+ a residential weekend on the beautiful Milson Island on the Hawkesbury River north of Sydney. Speakers and participants stay at the Milson Island Sport and Recreation Centre. Accommodation and meals provided and included in the conference fee.

+ full fee $800 + GST - $880. Student fee $400 + GST - $440 (only 30 student places avaiable)
