ReGenerating Community Conference
Sept 2 - 4, 2009. RMIT University, Melbourne


The conference was held in and around the RMIT Campus, Melbourne, including:

Storey Hall, RMIT
Storey Hall

Storey Hall today has an appearance and functions as excitingly diverse as its history. Built by the Hibernian Australasian Catholic Benefit Society as a meeting hall in 1887, the building was an important symbol of social and political protest. Storey Hall has today found new life as a major architectural site of the city, and as a significant contributor to the arts and exhibiting calendar. A glance at its past shows that Storey Hall has, throughout its long colourful history, been a part of the life of Melbourne.

Tjanabi restaurant

Tjanabi Restaurant has built an international reputation for the quality of its Australian game foods and native produce - featuring Kangaroo, emu, crocodile, wild boar and seafood. The team at Tjanabi has designed the menu to reflect the traditional six seasons of Melbourne. The traditional owners of the Melbourne area, the Boon wurrung and Woi wurrung divided the year into six seasons. Each season brought with it a new bounty of seasonal produce - and a new journey cycle. At Tjanabi - you will be able to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and appreciate the fine art of one of Australia's leading Indigenous artists, Shane Pickett.
