With unprecedented investment and development interest, Hobart's economic future is looking bright. But what about our social and cultural future, and our built heritage too?

Presented by the Institute of Architects Tasmanian Chapter and Open House Hobart, this event series explores Hobart's growing pains and asks, what do we want our future to look like, and how do we grow while preserving and nurturing the things that make Hobart unique?

At this first event with urban designer Stephen Thorne and planner Ralph Webster we'll explore lessons and examples from Cape Town to Auckland for inspiration about Hobart's future. MC Leon Compton will also launch a survey to capture your ideas for how the city could and should evolve.

Free event. Generously supported the Tasmanian Chapter of the Australian Institute of Architects and the University of Tasmania's Institute for the Study of Social Change.
