A year on from the first lockdown linked to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Glass-House Community Led Design looks back on a year in which they have had to reconsider how they engage communities in shaping their places.
The final event in The Glass-House Co-designing Sustainable Places series looks back on their 2020/21 WEdesign online series, in which they have been exploring how they empower people and communities to work creatively and collaboratively towards more sustainable places, and to do so with the limitations of social distancing.
The event will bring together students and tutors from the series partners UCL Bartlett, The Glasgow School of Art and University of Sheffield, as well as community activists, design and regeneration practitioners, housing providers, policy makers, researchers and others for a pause for reflection, and to share what they have learned through the series and in the past year.
It will also incorporate research carried out by UCL MSc Planning students on how placemakers around the country have been adapting to new ways of communicating and interacting through design engagement online and off.
Co-design in the Time of Covid will be a space for open discussion and debate and for sharing experiences and learning. The Glass-House Community Led Design invites you to join them and to help build momentum for truly inclusive and interactive spaces for collaborative design aimed at creating more inclusive, equitable and sustainable places.
