Hold the Date in your diary + Register- Shaping Better Places Together Workshop on 25th April at JTP, London, 23 - 25 Great Sutton Street, EC1V 0DN

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

You are invited to the Shaping Better Places Together Workshop on WED 25 APRIL @ JTP

Organised by JTP and University of Dundee in collaboration with the Academy of Urbanism and Urban Design Group

During 2017 a specialist team from the University of Dundee, Eclipse Research and Kevin Murray Associates, supported by the Scottish Government, undertook ground-breaking research into 'the facilitation of participatory placemaking'.

The publication of the resulting report - ‘‘Shaping better places together” - marks what we believe is a first attempt to investigate the role and significance of facilitators in participatory community design processes. The topic is highly relevant, given the increasing application of participatory and community design events in Scotland and beyond, along with the use of different engagement tools and methods.

This research provides an important scoping of the many components and steps involved. Its findings will aid understanding and ultimately enhance the output performance of community charrettes and similar participatory design processes.

The research should give confidence to professional facilitators, local authorities, local communities and the development industry active in collaborative processes, underpinning the investment in skills and expertise of appropriate facilitators.

This event, between 5:30 pm and 8:30pm at JTP, will explore the key findings, and stimulate a panel and audience discussion around the lessons from this practice-based research.

This promises to be an excellent insightful session for a wide range of placemaking practitioners and community client-advocates.

If you are interested in attending this event please register by the 15th of April . Places are free but limited, so registration is required.
