Unsettling Country

6 May 2024

As part of our commitment to our national Reconciliation Action Plan, the ACA SA is hosting a series of lunchtime talks that will explore the opportunities and privileges of working on Country and with First Nations peoples.

These talks are an opportunity for Adelaide practices to share knowledge, network and build the cultural understanding of their staff. Our first talk will be held on 30 May at Brickworks during Reconciliation Week.

Anthony Coupe, Creative Director of the Australia Pavilion at the Venice Biennale of Architecture, will discuss the 2023 exhibition, Unsettling Country. This exhibition “explored principles of unsettling, weaving elements from real places and gleanings from current architectural intelligence in search of ingredients to contribute to Venice’s Laboratory of the Future.”

We look forward to seeing you there.
