The Australian Archi Parlour is a fabulous website full of helpful research about women, equity and architecture.
PARLOUR: a space to speak – bringing together research, informed opinion and resources; generating debate and discussion; expanding the spaces for women in Australian architecture.
Last year I supported their crowdfunding campaign which raised funds for their ongoing research. As part of my ‘reward’ for supporting their cause, I was the guest host guest host over at the Parlour’s instagram account for one week back in December. I was honoured to have the opportunity to showcase some of Ballarat favourite heritage buildings, some contemporary architecture, and some inspiring local women who are helping lead Ballarat to a better future.
“We are handing over the Instagram account to a different host every week. This is an opportunity to present a complex picture of architecture and the people involved in it.” http://archiparlour.org/
As I was able to choose my theme, I decided that my three posts each day would be in each of these categories:
- Ballarat heritage architecture
- Ballarat contemporary architecture
- Ballarat inspiring women
So there was a total of 21 posts, with seven in each category. It was quite difficult to narrow down my selections! I’ll be sharing these posts here on blog in the coming weeks, and I look forward to hearing which are your favourites!
Each post was tagged #ParlourInstaGuest so if you want to follow along and see the amazingly diverse range of posts from all of the guests over the past 6 or so months, and into the future! Oh, and I can be found at instagram here if you’d like to connect: @talina_edwards
