An event is being held in Melbourne to celebrate the tradition of radical student conferences in landscape architecture.

The EDGE conference series began in Melbourne in 1983 to challenge established norms and create productive social and professional networks – many of which continue to this day.

EDGEy, to be held Saturday 7 October 2017, will bring together current students and EDGE organizers and participants from Australia and abroad to celebrate tradition and look to the future. Organizers hope the event will “activate fresh critical energy” in Australian landscape architecture.

Guests include Steven Tupu (New York, co-convenor EDGE TOO, 1992), Marian Macken (Auckland, co-convenor Big Sky, 1995), Grant Revell (Perth, co-convenor of WEDGE, 1997) and Jerry de Gryse (Hobart, co-convenor of EDGE 1, 1983).

The program includes a live Q&A session, a “knowledge cabaret” and more at Melbourne’s historic Savage Club.
