Join Parlour and the Institute of Architects for Canberra’s first Parlour Seasonal Salon of 2024. See you on 1 May for a great conversation with Joanne Farrell and Shannon Battisson!

We are thrilled to be back in Canberra for another Seasonal Salon, and are delighted to welcome Joanne Farrell and Shannon Battisson to the conversation stage.

Joanne is founder of Build Like A Girl, general manager of Kane Construction ACT, ACT Australian of the Year and ACT Woman of the Year 2024. We are super excited she is joining the inimitable Shannon for a lively and heartfelt conversation about life and work in and around architecture and building.

After the conversation it’s over to you – catch up with friends and colleagues, meet new people, build new networks and revive older ones. And simply enjoy the company of some of the great people of Canberra over refreshments.
