What will Brisbane look like in 2050? This will be the main topic of discussion at the upcoming event, Brisbane 2050: Imagining our Future City, hosted by architecture and interior design firm, Arkhefield in partnership with the Brisbane Writers Festival (BWF).

To be held at the Queensland State Library on Saturday 5th September 2015, the Brisbane 2050: Imagining our Future City event will feature Arkhefield principal Andrew Gutteridge, who will join a panel of experts including renowned social demographer, Bernard Salt; architect, author and journalist, Elizabeth Farrelly; and Griffith University Associate Professor, Geoff Woolcock for a Town Hall meeting-style discussion on Brisbane’s future.

Observing that Brisbane has enormous potential, Gutteridge says a key objective of the event is to engage the community in shaping the city’s future. He adds that the open platform presents a prime opportunity for people to talk about their vision for Brisbane.

An Instabooth has been installed at the ABC headquarters in South Bank from 17 August and on-site at the Brisbane Writers Festival from 2 September to gather data and inputs from the community on their hopes for Brisbane’s future.

Underlining Arkhefield’s focus on creating places and spaces that are unique and make a positive contribution to the fabric of society, Gutteridge adds that the Brisbane 2050 event is a great forum for them to gain greater understanding of the local community’s aspirations for the city.

Brisbane 2050: Imagining our Future City will be held at the Queensland State Library on Saturday 5th September 2015 from 6pm to 8pm. Tickets are available from
