Cave Bureau’s research and exhibition programmes fall under what they call The Anthropocene Museum, where they curate discursive architectural events of resistance across many environments of natural beauty, commonly within caves such as along the Great Rift Valley, the capital city Nairobi in Kenya, and in different parts of the world.

In these settings they curate the congress of multiple communities, to confront the pressing challenges of this age and imagine the construction of new post-colonial futures of our built environments. They will discuss their design practice and unpack the notable project of their Anthropocene Museum 4.0 where they proposed a “Cow Corridor” infrastructure that would allow the indigenous Maasai community to graze their cattle within the city without being harassed by county officials.

This event takes place at Community Hall,  a space to gather, connect and celebrate Melbourne’s diverse and creative communities, located in the heart of the Melbourne Now exhibition on the ground floor.
