Harbinger Consultants

Culture + Complexity + Change

PROJECTS | Work in progress

Over the last couple of months, Harbinger’s work with the Urban Land Development Authority has continued at Fitzgibbon (Brisbane) and with involvement in the Oonoonba (Townsville) Urban Development Area commencing. Both projects involve public art masterplanning as part of the placemaking strategy for these developments, which focus on the provision of affordable housing. In these projects we act as catalysts, strategists, curators and project managers.

Harbinger is also undertaking project management for the ‘tuned railings’ public art installation which will be launched this month as part of the display village. This work was developed by Brisbane based artists Barbara Penrose and Nameer Davis who have designed railings to be installed in several public spaces that will play music when activated by touch.

Work at Oonoonba has just commenced with background research to identity opportunities for cultural development and public art. This process will also involve consultations with the local community and other stakeholders.

John is also working with South East Queensland Indigenous Chamber of Commerce, providing facilitation for their strategic and forward planning to enhance Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander economic and enterprise development.

We are also finalising a regional development strategy for a Brisbane based regional development agency. This strategy was informed by background and statistical research, interviews with key stakeholders including government department representatives and peak bodies and a policy review. The interview methodology was designed as a generative process which, supported by desktop research, revealed significant opportunities for enhanced regional development, social inclusion and other priorities for Brisbane. The result is a strategy that purposefully knits client and stakeholder aspirations to enhance Brisbane’s development as an emerging world city.
