HeART of the Matter Discussion Series - People Make Places

Wolsingham School, County Durham, DL13 3DJ
Sat 29th September 2018 9:30AM

Northern Heartlands and November Club present People Make Places.  A day to explore ideas, make connections and be inspired. We have invited an outstanding group of speakers and workshop leaders to stimulate and lead conversations about building big ideas for smaller places. How do we grow enthusiasm and get noticed? What are the challenges and barriers we face? How can we tackle these by thinking differently and working together?

The morning speakers bring experience of creating successful, transformative projects: 

Pam Warhurst CBE, chair of Pennine Prospects and founder of Incredible Edible  
John Fox and Sue Gill, founders of Dead Good Guides 
Cinzia Hardy, Artistic Director of November Club 

Ruth Ben-Tovim, Encounters

In the afternoon, all participants will put their knowledge and experience together, looking in more detail at the issues faced by community projects in smaller places and rural areasand working together to find solutions. There will also be plenty of time to chat, share experiences and make new connections. 

This event is of interest to community groups, artists, academics, local activists, placemaking and landscape professionals, local government and relevant organisations. 

We want this event to be affordable to all.  Please choose a ticket price option that suits your budget, but if you can pay more this will help us fund the day.
