Abstract

Distinctly in 2019, the notion that Indigenous engagement and placemaking is essential to design thinking is gaining greater currency. Importantly, the question of why we should consider Indigenous perspectives, expression and connectedness in shaping our places and spaces in a major metropolis like Melbourne is broadly understood. The real challenge is less a question of why, but rather rests on how. How do we implement such lofty aspirations and ambition? How do we ensure and centre Indigenous agency? How do we foreground Indigenous knowledge and connections?
