The Civic University
Tue 20 September 2016, 17:30 – 20:00 BST
Join us for an event designed to explore the concept of a ‘civic university’ through a series of presentations by leading practitioners including Dr Clare Melhuish, Senior Research Associate & Co-Director, UCL Urban Laboratory - author of University-led Regeneration: a set of comparative case studies, featuring a range of cross-disciplinary urban research methods, which informed the development of UCL's own spatial development project in east London.
The evening will also include a presentation by design collective Something & Son, who as part of their Market Town comission have been exploring the relationship between the civic and the university in their project Market Lectures, where Loughborough town market and University traded places.
This event is organised as part of Radar’s current project, Market Town, a long-term project comprising commissions and critical debate designed to engage with the regeneration of Loughborough’s high street. The Market Town public events programme is intended to further investigate the themes explored in the main commissions, and to further engage the local community in the debate about the future of Loughborough.
