Discovery Sessions

 
Every month you will have the opportunity to engage with your peers on the emerging topics being addressed by the Future of Place project. 
 
Each session involves a facilitated 45min dialogue with government and industry leaders, immediately followed by a rapid 45min interactive feedback session using strategic questions to identify issues, opportunities and actions.
These sessions provide an opportunity for you to hear about the latest ideas, opportunities, case studies and research about the future of place. And through the interactive session, they enable you to see what the broader industry is thinking. You can download the 2021 Discovery Session Brochure.

Summit

In addition to our monthly discovery sessions, an annual Future of Place Summit will be hosted in August to gather our community and exchange, network and advance our work in exploring opportunities for innovating policy, practice and research.
In 2021 the Future of Place Summit will be hosted in Brisbane, on Wednesday 25 August.
