Social Architecture, Place Making & Redevelopment

This discussion will look at the roles studio providers can play in the redevelopment of urban landscapes, focusing on the intersection between city planning and cultural organisations/projects (e.g. Heritage Action Zone, City of Culture and Creative People and Places).

Our speakers will interrogate the roles their spaces have engaged with social architecture, communal/artist-led living, and how they’ve avoided ‘art washing or complicity in gentrification with the overall aim to contribute to building a more cohesive and engaged locality.

Questions we will consider; 

  • How can we ensure artists are supported in the redevelopment of their local landscape?
  • How do we build and nurture an organic creative community?
  • How can geographical history and storytelling become part of our reimagined architecture?
