Save the Schonell.
On Thursday 1 November 2018, Michael called upon UQ to abandon their plans to knock down the Schonell. He raised the issue of the leaked feasibility report, which showed that the theatre could be modernised for $13 million, compared to the $100m+ needed for the most recent campus mega-project.
The Schonell and Union complex are the beating heart of UQ. It is heartening to see that there are students willing to stand up for this piece of heritage and a vibrant campus culture.
