Making Places Together: City as a Gallery

Join this online discussion on how we can bring our familiar spaces to life in a creative way.

The visual landscapes in our cities often become over-familiar and lose the element to delight and surprise. Cultural heritage and local stories can also get lost.

Reframing a cityscape as a gallery and connecting city geography and heritage through creative works can encourage new perspectives and discoveries.

As we emerge from lockdown, many of us are unsure of the routine journeys we used to take and the regular places we used to visit.

This online event is free but you need to register to attend. To register, go to Making places together (opens in new window). To read about other Making Places Together events, go to Culture projects.
