Come join us as we redefine Glasgow as a Feminist City to celebrate International Women’s Day 2023.

In October 2022, Glasgow City Council became the first UK city to back a proposal which will see Scotland’s largest city make women central to all aspects of planning, public realm design, policy development and budgets.

We invite you to join our event, where we will be working with students from the Mackintosh School of Architecture to explore the principals and theories behind creating a feminist urban realm, and how these can impact and redefine the city today.

This Glass-House WEdesign event will be an active space where students, practitioners, policy-makers and citizens work together with The Glass-House, Missing in Architecture and students and tutors from the Mackintosh School of Architecture, to explore and co-design creative methods of engagement and collaborative placemaking that can help us redefine our places.

This is a free event, but places are limited. Book your place by following the ‘Book now’ button.

This event, in partnership with Mackintosh School of Architecture at Glasgow School of Art and Missing in Architecture, will take place in-person at Civic House in Glasgow.

Further event details will be confirmed in the new year.

WEdesign is kindly supported by the Ove Arup Foundation

About the series

Change is a dynamic constant in our lives and through the Relearning Place event series we will explore the concept of relearning and how this approach might encourage people to think differently and to affect culture, policy and practice in design and placemaking. 

Through a series of online and in-person events, Relearning Place explores the role of communities in design and placemaking and how the recent changes in political, economic, socio-cultural and environmental influences are altering how we respond, relate to and adapt the places where we live, work and play.

So how do we reconsider what we think we know about place and placemaking as we adapt to external factors of change?

What do we have to unlearn to enable us to relearn

Is relearning a continual process for places?

Relearning Place is The Glass-House 2022/23 WEdesign series which combines free, interactive events and co-design activities taking place in person in Glasgow, Sheffield, London, Newcastle, with a range of online events and think pieces.
