Churches Housing and BaptistCare are working with Macquarie University in research on the experience of living in multicultural high-rise, mixed-tenure and high-density urban environments.
The Vertical Villages researchers are inviting residents to talk about their experiences – the deadline is Thursday, 10 December 2020.
A key part of the research is the role of faith-based organisations in helping place-making and community development in these neighbourhoods to improve people’s sense of community and connection.
Do you know people who live in an apartment building of 4 storeys or more in the suburbs of Macquarie Park, Epping, Parramatta, Chatswood or Bankstown? If yes, then the researchers want to hear about experiences of high-rise living and learn what more can be done to support a greater sense of community in high-rise apartments.
Interviews will run for about one hour over Zoom, Skype, or phone at a convenient time. Participants receive a $50 e-gift card as a thank you for time and contribution.
Register by emailing Dr Emma Mitchell at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 9850 2153.
Contact Dr Miriam Williams to find out more about the interview.

This project is co-funded by Macquarie University, Baptist Care and Churches Housing (on behalf of Together for Ryde).
The project’s participant summary, online toolkit and final report are due in March next year.
