The research funding that led to Parlour is now finished, but there is still much work to do and we want to make the most of the significant momentum we have built so far. A brief update on plans so far.
Over the past three years Parlour has become an important ‘space to speak’; a strong and respected online platform providing research, resources and discussion about gender equity and architecture.
We have built a high profile and a significance audience, both nationally and internationally. We have helped fuel the demand for a more equitable profession, with better work practices, and have provided substantial resources to facilitate the changes required.
The funding for the research project at the heart of Parlour has now finished, but there is still much work to do on this complex issue, and we want to make the most of the significant momentum we have built so far.
Parlour is in the process of transforming from a media platform to an organisation – we are now an incorporated association. This will enable us to continue as a powerful voice in the profession that also provides space for others; to expand the resources available and to develop new initiatives and research.
To do this we need assistance from sponsors, donors and supporters – like-minded organisations, business and individuals who value our work and its results. We will soon be in a position to announce some exciting news about an inaugural major sponsor, and will launch a wider funding campaign
