How can urban development deliver more meaningful cultural and social impact? Relative Projects will explore this question through a temporary restaurant and conversation series at their studio event space in Collingwood.
Each evening will feature a talk by inspiring industry leaders from design, development, and impact-driven businesses, who will share their experience over dinner—a three-course cultural immersion created with social enterprise Free to Feed. Ticket sales support the training of people seeking asylum to gain experience and employment in the hospitality sector.
Loretta is the CEO of Free to Feed, which she co-founded after a decade working in the refugee sector with leading humanitarian organisations in Australia and abroad.
Shannon is a director of Milieu Property, a development company committed to delivering projects that positively influence their urban setting and the lives of those that interact with them.
Mitra is the Head of Urban Design & Strategy at Impact Investment Group, and has pursued her longstanding interest in the creative forces that drive city making as a founding board member of Schoolhouse Studios.
Marcus is leading the development of Collingwood Yards as the inaugural CEO of Contemporary Arts Precincts, and was the founder of the Renew Newcastle and Renew Australia projects.
