Launcestonís central city is changing in response to a combination of global and local trends. Under the overall banner of the Launceston City Deal, a number of initiatives over the next few years provide the opportunity to guide the CBD away from business-as-usual to become a more vibrant and productive regional centre.

This forum brings together practitioners from business/retail, arts/culture, build environment/design, and education systems to discuss the future of the central city, examine the global trends and local initiatives that are driving change, and establish a vision of what it might be possible to create.
