Learning From Alice Springs

LEARNING FROM ALICE SPRINGS 17 October – 4 November 2018

Over the past 3 years, UON Architecture students and staff have worked with the Alice Springs practice, Tangentyere Design. This unique collaboration has allowed students to participate in designing real projects within the Town Camps of Alice Springs, while meeting residents and being part of the community for a couple of weeks. Many of the projects have subsequently received funding, and some have been constructed. Our contribution is a modest effort to restore a measure of social equity and cultural agency within places Australia appears to have largely forgotten. This exhibition is an overview of some of the work undertaken, and some of the experiences that were collected along the way.
