Conversation Quarter

Opening in spring 2019, the Conversation Quarter is a unique blend of heritage architecture and cutting-edge technology, ideal for lectures, panel discussions and seminars.

Melding three centuries of architecture under one roof, the courtyard space features the Library’s original bluestone wall as a one-of-a-kind focal point, backed by the Edwardian arched windows of the La Trobe Reading Room and topped with postmodern roofing. Equipped with the latest live-stream technology, the space can be connected in real time to international speakers and organisations across the globe.

With a flexible floor plan and seating options ranging from formal to casual, the Conversation Quarter can accommodate the smallest of seminars or fabulous larger functions. If you’re organising a major conference, the Conversation Quarter can be hired as a complementary venue for events held in the Village Roadshow Theatrette or Conference Centre.
