Open House Melbourne
<p>Emma is the Executive Director of Open House Melbourne and, like the organisation, she champions the city of Melbourne through its built environment. </p> <p>Open House delivers a broad range of public programs that celebrate design and architecture in the built environment, and inform people about the importance of urban diversity in the rapidly developing city. </p> <p>At the heart of the program is the Open House Weekend, where people get to visit significant buildings and sites across the city to learn about how the built environment and urban planning initiatives and issues influence our culture and shape our future. Open House aims to encourage civic pride and activism to ensure Melbourne remains a liveable and vibrant city for all.</p> <p>Emma is also a founding partner of the Office for Good Design, a unique curatorial group that works with private organisations and major cultural institutions to realise their interest in design, architecture, and the broader creative industries. </p>
