What is the role of culture in building more sustainable communities? Part of it is enhancing people’s sense of belonging to the city and its development, in ways that are accessible to all including the most deprived.

This symposium explores the role of culture in delivering successful urban regeneration where the physical, economic and social aspects of culture are integrated and work together.

Speakers include:

Dave Moutrey, Manchester City Council Director of Culture and Director of HOME
Kasper Heiberg Frandsen, Partner, Schmidt Hammer Lassen
Thea Behrman, Senior Project Manager, Estuary 2020
Peder Baltzer Nielsen, Chief City Architect, Municipality of Aalborg
James Heather, Development Director, Mayfield, U+I

Chair: Stephen Jolly, Partner, BuroHappold Engineering
