AILDM QLD's next round table meeting will be held at Civosity Park, Bardon, on 24 September.

Park Address - 7 Fletcher Parade, Bardon
OUR HOST & GUIDE
We will be guided through the park by its creator David Engwicht.
David has over 25 years experience in place making. He is a passionate designer, artist, author, communicator, and social inventor, best known as the creator of the Walking School Bus. He is also the creator of the 7 Day Makeover, in which entire town centres are rejuvenated in seven days. PPS in New York describe him as “one of the world’s most inventive thinkers on creating vibrant public spaces”. Nothing gives David greater joy than working with communities to breathe new life into dead spaces.
David believes that what people do with their private land has more impact on the vitality of neighbourhoods than anything that authorities can do on public land. To demonstrate, he has turned his entire yard into a public park, and it has become a valued community gathering space.
