RICHARD BRECKNOCK /
Richard is an urban strategist, Director of Brecknock Consulting P/L and an Associate of COMEDIA UK. He has a Master of Arts in Cultural and Media Policy from Griffith University and is a member of the Planning Institute of Australia’s Social Planning and Urban Design chapters.
Richard established the consultancy in 1988 following successful careers as a film director and professional visual artist. Richard is committed to developing culturally rich urban environments. He believes that culture underpins every aspect of our lives and decision making and needs to be better recognised as the foundation element in building creative and sustainable communities. This, he believes, can be achieved through: culturally relevant urban planning and design.
As of 2020, Richard has ceased his consulting work in order to undertake a PhD at University of SA focused on the role of cultural planning in the human centred city.
