For over two decades, Jefa Greenaway of Greenaway Architects has championed Indigenous-led design thinking, particularly through the International Indigenous Design Charter.
Join us for a breakfast presentation by Jefa Greenaway, an Indigenous architect, academic at Melbourne University, design advocate and part of the team that launched the International Indigenous Design Charter. As a registered architect in New South Wales and Victoria, he seeks to reveal layers of history and memory through connections to place, demonstrating the value of people-centred design which interrogates one’s own philosophical or ethical underpinning and design responsibilities. Jefa is co-curating the 2020 Australian pavilion for the Venice Architecture Biennale.
The Co-Creation: Cross-Culture symposium will facilitate a conversation around how new ways to co-create can result in shared values and sustainable outcomes for our built environment. We will focus on design, co-creation, and education. During this second workshop of the Co-Creation Series, participants will discuss collaboration in a cross-cultural context to learn about innovative methods introduced to the field by experts from various cultural backgrounds, and how participatory co-creation can uncover and explore new perspectives to our communities and cities.
