Nick Origlass: Local Exception or Prophet for the 21st Century?

Nick Origlass (1908-1996) is credited with introducing ‘open council’ and championing ‘public participation in planning’ on Leichhardt Council in the 1960s.  On April 14th as part of our  local Heritage Festival programme former Leichhardt councillor Hall Greenland spoke on the rich legacy of these ideas pioneered by Nick and his comrade Issy Wyner – whether the ideas worked; and “does, in fact, the good men and women do, live on after them?” You can download Hall Greenland’s talk here (Adobe PDF reader required).Origlass_Heritage Week talk
