Parlour Salon: 'A Marvel of Women'

Thursday 12th October, 5.30pm @ the JCU Cairns Institute

Far North Queensland is a marvel – we have the largest percentage of women architects in Australia (well over 30%). Is this a statistical anomaly, or is architecture in the far north a more conducive environment for women to practice in? We often wonder: Why are we all here? How did we get here? How is it different from 30 years ago? What does this marvel of women mean for the built environment here?

Please join Parlour and the Australian Institute of Architects FNQ Member Group at the JCU Cairns Institute for a panel discussion to reflect on these questions – firstly among our panellists and then in conversation with the audience.
