Event description

Description

The first in a series of 3 events about engaging with issues from the UNESCO World Heritage Site. This first one is about BOUNDARIES and will involve 2 short interjections about boundaries one of which will be by Rob Burns, a former LCC Planning Officer involved in the designation of the WHS boundary.

Organised in partnership with Wordscape's Fiona and Andrew this event is certain to be a fascinating and insightful discussion about how we navigate our city's and our own boundaries. It will also feed into a wider debate about changing the boundaries of the WHS in Liverpool.



BOUNDARIES


Boundaries can be both physical, like the a road that cuts the city off from its waterfront, or invisible – arbitrary lines on a map that cut districts, cities, regions and countries up, separating one area from another

But who sets these boundaries and who decides when they change? Do the invisible boundaries matter as much as the physical boundaries?

What do they mean for our heritage? Who decides what falls inside our World Heritage Site? Can it change? Are things that lie beyond it less important?

When we think about the cities in which we live, what boundaries are important to us?



The next 2 events will involve a Walking Tour of the WHS starting on the roof of Central Library at 5.30pm on Wednesday 19th June and the 3rd event will be held at The Florrie in the Dingle on Wednesday 17th July at 5.30pm involving heritage buildings at risk around the city and their connections to the WHS.
