A great opportunity for all UTS “urbanists”: the upcoming VIVID Festival (24th of May – 10th of June, 2013) will hosts a very interesting public talk “Transform the city“, by Andreas Dalgaard (documentarist) and David Sim (architect). The talk is going to take place at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA Forum Harbourside) from 6pm and 9pm. General Admission is $25.00, Concession $20.00, and you can book on the VIVID website. Below a short description of the event.

By 2050, 80% of the world’s population will live in cities. Cities are the places were cultures clash or combine, where innovation is born, or where social divisions can become even starker. It’s up to us, today, to determine just how livable these megacities will be, and to design the foundations for a more sustainable, inclusive and creative world.

David Sim (Copenhagen), partner at Denmark’s world-leading Gehl Architects, is at the forefront of the global movement to bring the human dimension back into our public realm, and to transform our cities into places that encourage connections, creativity and a sense of community. In an exclusive Australian keynote, David will share his insights into how we can all be designers of a new urban future. David will then join Andreas Dalgaard (Copenhagen), director of documentaries The Human Scale and Cities on Speed: Bogota Change, and a panel of urban visionaries to explore models for creative place-making.
