Public Space Picnic: Learning from Landscapes

  • Walking tour

In this series of outdoor conversations, speakers give a short tour of an overlooked public space or architectural feature at the University of Melbourne.

For this session, we will look at the symbolic meaning of landscapes, with a focus on trees. Ines Jahudka, a PhD Candidate in History, will introduce participants to four distinct periods of tree planting around the Parkville campus, touching on the history of horticulture and garden design.

Meet at 2pm in front of Scholar & Co coffee shop (close to the intersection of Grattan and Swanston Streets). From there we will walk throughout the Parkville campus. Cafe and route are not wheelchair accessible.
