Last week, the City of Melbourne released a report that detailed research conducted by RMIT’s Shanti Sumartojo, Sarah Pink, Joanne Mihelcic and Nick Walton-Healey at the Queen Victoria Market.

The RMIT team were engaged to conduct research into the intangible values of the market, which included observations and interviews from shoppers, workers, traders and tourists as a means to unearth what makes the site significant. The research was conducted in early 2017 at a time when the Queen Victoria Market redevelopment was a strong discussion point. To read the article and report, see the link below.
