Register and join us for a fun evening event to chase the Covid blues away.This special fundraiser event is certain to bring out the debater in us all.
Tuesday 27 October, 7.30pm

Debate topic: Individualism is the antithesis of good design

Hosted by Craig Zonca, ABC Radio Brisbane

A future-focused debate about the place of individualism in design. Does good design naturally address its place in the landscape, and its community? How does individualism impact the worldview, streetscape, or city plan for the many?

The Tragedy of the Commons is perpetually played out with significant long-term impacts. Some behaviours led by poor choices result in social, economic, and environmental impacts.

It may be individualism as innovation that may save us from the impacts of complex problems but it is the efforts in promoting better, more socially responsible actions– globally and locally– that can result in a better future.

The Great Debate Fundraiser is a sustainability initiative raising funds for Brisbane Open House– a not for profit organisation– who provides the free Brisbane Open House weekend annually.
