Hear from experts in placemaking and cultural strategies as we look forward to reconnecting with places and people.
When rooted in local talent, ambition and community, cultural installations, venues and institutions offer a unique opportunity to become destinations and create exceptional places.

How do you create a cultural destination? What role does cultural placemaking play in attracting visitors and locals? What opportunities are there for young people interested in creative careers? How can heritage be celebrated and enhanced? 

Hear from experts in placemaking and cultural strategies as we look forward to reconnecting with places and people after the easing of lockdown measures.
