“There is no logic that can be superimposed on the city; people make it, and it is to them, not buildings, that we must fit our plans.”
― Jane Jacobs

In the age of placemakers and city shapers, our speakers move to explore the city beyond its mere fabric and look at Brisbane with a different lens to examine, what forms the heart of a place?

Our speakers will focus on how people and their attachments to the past build connections to places and create a vibrancy that our cities are craving.

Beyond the conventional approach of the city as architectural backdrop, how do non-material aspects of places and their intangible values influence the way we interact with the built environment? How can we recognise the importance of the intangible values of places? And more importantly, how can we protect, conserve and celebrate them in our rapidly changing cities?

The Trust Talks are a series of speaker events that provide up to date, relevant information, discussions and debate about heritage and its place in Australia. The Trust Talks aim to open the doors for innovation, collaboration and celebration of our heritage.

Each talk showcases some of the industry’s brightest talents, who join us in exciting heritage locations to examine the issues involved with protecting, conserving and celebrating our built, environmental and cultural heritage.

Presented by the National Trust of Australia (Queensland) supported by 2018 National Trust Heritage Awards winner West Village, at West Village’s Bromley Room.
