Join us to explore and celebrate the role of communities in shaping sustainable futures for historic places of worship.

About this Event

Empowering Design Practices LIVE will create a space for discussion and for sharing stories, as well as present the learning and resources developed through the five-year Empowering Design Practices research project. We will be sharing approaches to supporting community leadership and engagement in the design and adaptation of faith buildings.

The event will include opportunities for knowledge exchange and networking between community groups, professionals and organisations that work in the fields of faith, heritage, architecture and community development and will facilitate the development of ideas and propositions for the future.

Welcome from 9:30 for a prompt start at 10:00. Drinks reception and interactive project showcase from 17:30 till 19:00.

The event is free but places are limited. Some travel bursaries are available for those most in need. If you are interested, please contact us to discuss: empoweringdesign@gmail.com.

St Paul's Hammersmith is an accessible venue, located only a 4 minute walk away from Hammersmith underground station (Piccadilly and District tube lines).

Please note

During the event we will be recording activities and artefacts (via audio, video and photography) in order to share the proceedings and learning with others, during and after the event. These will be shared via social media, publications and our project website. You will be asked to consent to this when filling in the registration form.
