Encounter with the neighbourhood: with Martineau Gardens & Future Parks

Lockdown has forced a re-evaluation of the role of green spaces in our lives.

For many people, parks, green space and gardens have become the focus of their cultural lives. This talk opens a conversation in which to question and reflect on our relationship with our environment and our communities. We have invited Jennie Fryer from Martineau Gardens and Debbie Needle from Future Parks Accelerator to share their thoughts and their projects.

In what ways can green space be a mechanism/stimulus for building community cohesion? And imagining our future City? Join us for this discussion.
