Reading the City: Melbourne on the Page

Across March we’ll be Reading the City; shining a light on the many ways we understand and talk about Melbourne itself. From the city as an abstract concept to the physical landscape in all its permutations, we’ll be hearing from visual artists and architects, policy makers and designers, novelists and historians. The City of Literature becomes the focus, and you’ll never read it the same way again.

Melbourne on the Page

Jason Steger will chair the event, with Andrea Goldsmith, Joan London and Ross Mueller explaining how they convert our buildings, lanes and streets into sentences, paragraphs and pages.
