Public Space Picnics
This series of open-air talks and tours will examine overlooked spaces across the university’s Parkville, Southbank, and Burnley campuses. Weekly in September and October, participants will gather to hear from a scholar on a particular aspect of social life as represented by the built, and natural, environment. Topics range from the hidden-in-plain-sight waste disposal network, to the role of different trees in shaping our sense of place and culture.
