Despite its roots in the arts and social reform, planning often feels like a highly technical process involving endless forms and acrimonious meetings – very far from being a creative experience. And yet, all around Britain, planners, developers, architects, creative practitioners and arts organisations are working together on innovative projects bringing the arts and people’s creativity back into the process of designing and building places.
Re:Place is a new national network for all those involved in this exciting movement. We want to provide a space where people can meet fellow travellers, share ideas and reconnect planning with its creative heart. If this is you, please come along to our launch event on September 3rd at Durham Town Hall or contact us if you are unable to attend but would like to join the network.
As part of the launch event, there will be a performance of “Land of Promise”, a words and music presentation journeying through three and half centuries of radical thought, writing, and song about the connection between art, social justice and the living environment.
