It's a year since the removal of the Martin Place Tent City, a grassroots campaign that aimed to shine a light on how public spaces are used by the homeless community.
Young and urban, UTS sits at the heart of communities facing some of the biggest issues of our time, including homelessness. In this Big Thinking Forum, we'll consider what we have learned since the Tent City. What has changed? Where are those voices now? Did this civil resistance contribute to a fairer Sydney?
We'll hear voices from the front line and investigate the role of government, researchers, not-for-profits and the community in helping to address homelessness.
Help us drive the conversation
We invite you to contribute to the forum by completing a questionnaire. Your responses will help frame the discussion on the night and allow us to understand how these issues affect you.
Our panel will include:
Moderator Verity Firth, Executive Director, Social Justice at UTS
Associate Professor Bronwen Dalton, Director of the Masters of Not-for-Profit and Community Management Program at UTS
A representative of NSW Family and Community Services (FACS)
Murray Bruce, Homelessness Data and Collaboration Lead, St Vincent de Paul Society NSW
Sarah Avery, UTS Law and Communications student
Refreshments will be served by the OzHarvest team.
