Australian Landscape Conference 2015

ART AND NATURE: Conflict and Harmony in the Landscape

With a stunning line up of key international and thought provoking speakers, this conference is not to be missed! 

Speakers this year are particularly relevant for Local Governments with their focus on addressing challenges of increased urbanisation. Civic landscapes, design of green networks for marginalised communities and sustainability are integral to the speakers' philosophies. 

With increasing awareness by planners that art, civic design and stimulating landscaping can all promote urban renewal, this conference is perfectly timed.

The conference begins with Martin Rein-Cano (Berlin) who argues that English style landscaping is boring and that we must inject a much greater artistic impulse into our landscaping. There are 12  brilliant presentations (10 international and 2 Australian) and the ALC provides a unique five day program.  No better environment exists to meet like-minded people, networking and exchanging ideas than at ALC 2015. 

With the 16 practical workshops (four by international speakers), the ever-popular Friday garden tour, relaxed Saturday night speakers’ dinner and the ALC is a must attend conference for planners, gardeners, designers, managers and anyone with an interest in landscape design!

Early bird registration (before June 30) now open. CPD points apply.
