The Vine is coming to Brisbane! We welcome students and recent grads to join us for an evening of fast-paced exchange and intimate conversations with mentors who have plenty of experience to share. Join us on 17 July at BVN. Book now!

What would you like to ask experienced practitioners about navigating equity and the world of work?

The Vine is our version of speed mentoring, an opportunity for students and recent graduates to connect with established practitioners for quick conversations and engaging story telling. Conceived and developed by Claire Oh, each session is led by a graduate from the hosting practice with support from Parlour.

As the new generation and the future of the industry, it is crucial for students and recent graduates to understand the ongoing struggles with life balance and career progression. There are many tactics and strategies they can learn to navigate personal situations and advocate for systemic change.

The Vine aims to create a safe space to discuss and share the challenges architects and practitioners face today in relation to diversity. Through intimate mentoring conversations, this event aims to initiate and foster ongoing relationships and a community of support, and bring light to peoples’ stories.
