The Place Debate is an opportunity to witness Australia’s emerging and established leaders from the fields of urban design, property and the creative industries, pitted against each other in a fun (but fierce) debate about our city. Speakers will respond to Toronto-based designer and educator Bruce Mau’s statement that “the suburbs are no place to raise a child”.

In a throwback to the high-school debate, the two three-a-side teams will be given time for rebuttal and prepared responses, and an overall winner crowned on the day. Moderated by Right Angle Studio and followed by an audience Q&A, this will be a fun and unique way to engage in important and varied dialogue about our city.

Teams are to be announced prior to The Place Debate, so watch this space!

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.
