Following our first series of Glass-House Chats, we are pleased to announce a new series inspired by both the participants of the last series, and by current debate and trends in the fields of design and placemaking.
Glass-House Chats are safe spaces to ask questions, explore ideas, approaches and methods, share learning and make connections. These free sessions, initially conceived for local authority officers and practitioners but open to all who are interested, are designed 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. Key discussion points will be collated and shared after each session.
Our first theme will be “Future-proofing the design of places”. Find out more about the session and book tickets here. Tickets will be released a month prior to each talk.
