Homepage » Events » Brisbane 2050: Imagining Our Future City

Brisbane is a great city, with enormous potential. We want to engage you in a conversation about Brisbane’s future self. What do you want Brisbane to be in 2050? What do you think Brisbane has to put in place to ensure it can support the increased population growth it is set to experience? What industries does the city need to encourage to make their home here? How can the city become more accessible for all Brisbanites? What has to be sacrificed for the future? Green space? Backyards? Roads and infrastructure where native plant life used to be? How safe will Brisbane be in 2050?

BWF is gathering data through the Instabooth, which will be installed at the ABC’s studios at South Bank from 17 August and on-site at the festival from 2 September. Drop in and contribute your hopes for Brisbane’s future. Then join a panel of experts including Bernard Salt, Elizabeth Farrelly, Geoff Woolcock, and Andrew Gutteridge, along with urban planners, community leaders, artists and economists for a good old fashion Town Hall meeting as we boldly design a vision for Brisbane’s future.

Presented by Arkhefield.
