We are introducing Glass-House Chats, a safe space to ask questions, explore ideas, approaches and methods, share learning and make connections. These are free sessions, conceived for local authority officers but open to all who are interested, to help build confidence and capacity in the sectors to engage communities in design and placemaking. 

The sessions will be chaired by The Glass-House Chief Executive Sophia de Sousa, who will briefly introduce the theme and then open the floor for an informal and open discussion among participants.

To ensure space for meaningful discussion, places are limited to a small group.

Our first theme will be “Unlocking cross-sector collaboration in placemaking”. Find out more about the session and book tickets here.
