The symposium includes a public event on Saturday 21 February, for community members to discuss their vision with experts and practitioners for the future of Ballarat and change in their local areas. A new Historic Urban Landscapes website, also the result of collaborations between the City of Ballarat and Federation University Australia, will be launched.
