Open House Melbourne 2021 — Expression of Interest
Posted Thu 25th Mar 2021 | Adelina Onicas
We’re inviting you – our built environment community – to take an active role in re-imagining our future by submitting an expression of interest (EOI) for Open House July 2021.
Melbourne is a diverse and rapidly growing city. It’s estimated that by 2050 it will grow to over 8 million people. This rapid growth brings with it great opportunities but also significant challenges for the future of our city, our suburbs and our regions – challenges that have never been more urgent to address as we emerge from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
As our community grapples with what might constitute a ‘new normal’ post-pandemic, we must also address equally urgent issues: recognising Indigenous sovereignty; human-induced climate change; access to social and affordable housing; compassionate care for our most vulnerable; and providing safe, equitable public space for all. It is clear that we must find new ways to reconnect and envisage transformative ways to live and work better together.
Reconnect: OHM JULY 2021 is a hybrid program that welcomes submissions for ‘in real life’ tours and events (where they can be conducted safely) as well as ‘virtual’ or online programs. This means that we will accept applications for physical tours, programs and events where registrations can be taken and where they can be conducted in line with COVIDSafe government guidelines. We also encourage and welcome submissions for online or virtual events that extend upon our 2020 virtual program.
Submit your expression of interest by: Friday 30 April 2021
All expression of interest applications will be reviewed by the Centre for Architecture | Open House Melbourne curatorial team together with the Open House Melbourne Building Council. You will be notified of your successful inclusion in the program via email by Friday 14 May 2021.
