Arts Thursday, with Maisy Stapleton on 22 October focuses on innovation in architecture and the visual arts. The program looks to the past, present and future to explore aspects of innovation and inspiration.
The program commences with an interview with dynamic young architect Emma Rees-Raaijmakers of Arque.
Emma’ success as a young architect, in a profession notorious for sidelining women, is itself inspirational. However, the key focus for Arts Thursday is Emma’s investment in the future of the city through Archikidz, an organisation dedicated to educating and engaging children with the urban and built environment. It’s an innovative approach to teaching kids about architecture and design and an inspiration to all who care about the nature of our urban environment.
