The design of the spaces and places where we live, work and play has a profound effect on our quality of life. So why aren’t the places we live, work and play in better for everyone? And does better connecting design with people make for better places?

Join us for an open conversation in the round, where we invite you to share reflections and ideas on the impact of design and how we can take action to realise better quality places.

This conversation aims to bring together a wide-ranging audience from communities, practice, education and policy to explore the perspectives and realities of different experiences of place and placemaking: personal, professional and collective.

Instead of the traditional panel of speakers, we’ll share crowd-sourced voices to prompt discussion. We’re particularly keen to explore how people and organisations can work more collaboratively and creatively locally on the design of places: join the conversation in Bristol to share your questions, ideas and experiences.

This event is in partnership with The Glass-House Community Led Design, and is one of a number of events taking place in partnership with Urban Rooms across the country in Edinburgh, Sheffield, Bristol and London, entitled The Glass-House People on Place Series.
