Event description

Description

For details of all experiences please see the Transitional City Website

Your tour begins with a visit to Ohu, based at XCHC, where Camia Young and Preston Hegel will share with you the purpose and motivations behind these two social enterprises. XCHC Café will provide you with lunch, the café sources its ingredients from local farmers and the menu changes daily based on what is seasonal. They will share with you XCHC’s story, and you will see how things that start with a social purpose can be nurtured into creating big impact and lasting change.

Last but not least we head to Space Craft Systems to see the most advanced prototype ‘slice of WikiHouse’ in the world at the first global ‘WikiLab’ manufacturing premises, and meet the everyday people who have made this happen. There will be a presentation from the founders - why they’re so passionate about this project, the values they bring to their work and their ability to engage the Citizen Sector directly in the delivery of the built environment. Find out what distinguishes the WikiHouse method of community based manufacture and who builds the houses that are going to change the world!

There will be interactive displays & demonstrations and a chance to view the scale-models and understand how they translate holistic thinking into built form. Plenty of opportunities for Q&A at the end.
