This is Public

As a city, Melbourne is undergoing radical growth and transformation, but to plan for its full potential, we need to understand its past and realise collective ownership over its future.

This is Public is a new bi-monthly podcast series that will ask big questions about the future of our city, with a special focus on built and natural environments and the people who shape them.

Hosts Emma Telfer (Open House Executive Director) and Sally McPhee (Open House program collaborator) will explore the stories, ideas and issues addressed in Open House Melbourne’s expanded program, creating a thought-provoking resource about the future of our city for you to enjoy on demand.

The first episode documents Open House Melbourne’s special Waterfront program for Melbourne Design Week 2019. Check back again soon to listen to the first episode. New episodes will be released every two months (give or take).

This is Public is recorded at and supported by The Espy, and brought to life by the Metro Tunnel Creative Program, a program dedicated to enhancing city life alongside the Metro Tunnel.
