Glass-House Chats are back for a new series of learning, sharing and chatting. 

About the Series

Now in its third series, Glass-House Chats are monthly one hour sessions, which explore different topical placemaking provocations in a safe online space that invites discussion and debate. 

Glass-House Chats are designed to create space for practitioners, students, local authority members and officers, community members, artists, activists and more to come together to ask questions, explore ideas, approaches and methods, share learning and make connections. These free sessions are designed to help build confidence and capacity across sectors and professions to help engage communities in design and placemaking.

The sessions will be chaired by The Glass-House team, who each month will briefly introduce the theme and then open the floor for an informal and open discussion among participants.

To ensure space for meaningful discussion, we limit places to a small group. Glass-House Chats follow Chatham House rules when sharing key discussion points after each session.
