Dickson Living Rooms Evaluation Report

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

Dickson Living Rooms is a physical and digital heritage project that seeks to expose the lived-experiences of Dickson through the decades: 1960s-2020s. In creatively recalling the past, the project offers a platform for conversation and debate regarding the neighbourhood’s future. Dickson is an eclectic area comprising buildings of various shapes, sizes and uses with people from all walks of life. It is a place where things are happening: people are learning, living and growing; decisions are being made and lives changed. These are all moments of urban life that contribute to the conceptual reading of the city as a cultural artefact. We see many opportunities in considering how we can bring the embedded memories of residents and visitors to the fore, where we can learn from them, reveal insights and understand elements of our cultural identity. Our project creatively replicates the classic Canberra ‘exgovie’ house, through both the development of a digital cultural map and a temporary temporary pavilion.
