About Suzette Sayer

As part of my role as heritage consultant I am constantly on the look out for iconic forms of design and architecture. My current project is a grass roots initiative to create a Mobile Museum that captures the stories of the Gold Coast through community interactions in temporary pop-up exhibitions. The project aims to be facilitated through the Hip! (Heritage in Paradise) Mobile, a vintage style tear drop caravan equipped with a recording studio, and room for exhibition materials. So join us on this journey of discovery and help us uncover HIP! Suzette Sayer
