Event description
A relaxed conversation around architecture and parenting - focussing on the great work fathers do when it comes to combining work and care.

About this Event

Let’s focus on fathers for a while, because the architectural profession does not often make visible or make room for the excellent work that fathers do raising their children.

Dividing 'work' and 'care' when raising a family and working in architecture is difficult to do - due to legislative, contractual and (practice) cultural barriers - especially when two careers need to thrive.

At A+W NZ we prefer to focus on the good news stories, and want to provide examples to the graduating students and current workforce of how the careers of all architects can be supported – regardless of gender – by fathers sharing the workload of ‘care’.

We also want to celebrate the excellent care work that fathers do - not a topic often aired within the context of discussing architectural careers.

Monday 11th November, doors open 6pm for 6:30pm start

Free (please register for catering purposes)

A big thank you to Moller Architects for their support with this event.
