The Wellbeing of Architects Melbourne 8 – 9 May

The Wellbeing of Architects symposium_slider 1080_2 title

The Wellbeing of Architects symposium aims to drive positive change, helping to create a healthier, more sustainable future for the architecture community.

TFA is a proud Research Partner on this important project. 

The Wellbeing of Architects [education + practice] symposium marks the conclusion of a comprehensive research project, The Wellbeing of Architects: Culture, Identity and Practice (2020-2024). This event, held over two days, presents the study’s findings and – more importantly – proposes actionable recommendations for addressing the mental health and wellbeing issues prevalent in the architecture community.

Day one focuses on architectural education, exploring methods to improve the wellbeing of students and educators. It will feature insights from teachers and student leaders, aiming to identify effective practices and cultures that foster mental wellbeing – in the studio and beyond.

Day two delves into architectural practice, addressing issues such as workload management, service valuation, and the promotion of a thriving culture. The symposium will provide practical advice for practitioners of all sizes and sectors, considering the broader construction industry context and the role of peak bodies in driving change.

The event will also launch the Guides to Wellbeing in Practice, a set of research-informed guides aimed discussion and action towards transformative change. Speakers include researchers, industry leaders, and innovative educators and practitioners, offering attendees new insights, tools, and resources to lead efforts in enhancing mental wellbeing within the architectural community.
