The Drill's 'Ask Us Anything'
Don't be shy! Jump over to Instagram and tell us what you really think! It's called SOCIAL media, right?
And in the same vein: Who knows best? Cities consult citizens for fresh ideas
What is ‘Ask Us Anything’?
Say you had a question that you wanted to ask an Australian architect, but you didn’t know how to approach them.
Then imagine you knew a journalist who could ask that question for you, and let you know the answer. The Drill is that journalist… with an extensive little black book of contacts, and architects in every state. We’re not afraid to ask the hard questions, either!
Send us an email, with your question, and the name of the person you’d like to reach, and we’ll attempt to get your answer… which will be published in an upcoming newsletter.
Ready, steady, go!
Email, and stay tuned for new insights!
