David Fitzsimmons.

David Fitzsimmons is an artist, public art advocate/project manager, and a former architect. In his current role as a project lead in the City of Melbourne’s Creative Urban Places team, his focus is on evolving new lines of creative inquiry which both complement the city’s urban design aspirations and extrude project contexts to explore and celebrate our multi-dimensional relationships with place and site.

Bringing a depth of insight into the mindset of creative practitioners and experience with both the limitations and rigours of fast-track design projects, he aims to safeguard the difficult passage of bold and challenging creative ideas through to their full realisation in the public realm. Through his role he supports critical examination of the city and its processes and is inspired by projects which challenge audience perceptions and proffer transformative experiences through creative public engagement.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
