The Royal Adelaide Hospital is a significant and much-loved site, located at the east end of the North Terrace Cultural Precinct. It’s a place that many South Australians have a strong emotional connection with the Kaurna community, the medical profession, patients and visitors to the hospital, as well as the adjacent university communities, Park Lands users, Botanic Garden visitors and the East End business community.
When the new hospital opens in 2016, the Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH) site will start to become vacant. A unique opportunity exists to transform the site to ensure its successful ongoing use. It is an opportunity to create a new role for this high profile site that respects and builds upon its significant cultural history and location.
It takes many minds to imagine and shape great places. Open Ideas, the RAH site engagement process, provided a platform for discourse, debate, creative thought and inspiration. The process explored many possibilities for the site and captured a broad range of the best ideas.
Becky Hirst Consulting was contracted to prepare a detailed Engagement & Communications Plan for the project. Our involvement went on to project managing a Launch Event for key stakeholders in a vacant shop in the heart of the East End and an innovative ‘Open Ideas Market Place’ at the State Library of South Australia.
