Jellicoe 2016 looks at the increasingly innovative approaches to engaging communities with landscape and green infrastructure. The Chatsworth Capability Brown Project is working with deprived communities and refugees to encourage them to explore the landscapes of Capability Brown and is part of the HLF and LI-supported Capability Brown Festival.
Professor Alan Simson from Leeds Beckett University presents new work on urban forests and green infrastructure and Pam Warhurst, founder of the Incredible Edible Network presents the latest thinking on urban agriculture.
The Jellicoe Lecture honours Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe (8 October 1900 – 17 July 1996) architect, town planner, landscape architect, garden designer, lecturer and author. In 1929 he was a founding member of the Landscape Institute and from 1939 to 1949 he was its President. In 1948, he became the founding President of the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA).
2016 marks the 20th anniversary of the death of Geoffrey Jellicoe, the 300th anniversary of the birth of Capability Brown and the 50th year of landscape architecture education in Leeds.
Edwin Knighton, Head of Landscape, Leeds Beckett University and Merrick Denton-Thompson, President of the Landscape Institute will introduce the event.
