The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Wrapping up the series of conversations about urbanism and cultural space, Spaces For Creation brings together leading artists, architects, urbanists and public designers to discuss the relationship between public and creative space.

Over 18 months, Spaces For Creation at Site Gallery looked at issues ranging from legible cities and how public space is negotiated to urban greening and how cities can establish a sustainable creative culture for the future.

This symposium ties together these threads and asks: what’s next?

Speakers include:
Heather Morison (Studio Morison)
Tom James (artist/writer; The Clearing)
Cecily Chua (Theatrum Mundi)
Fiona Boundy (Milton Keynes Council / Festival of Creative Urban Living, MK Skate)

Previous SFC talks have presented artists Morag Myerscough and Catalina Pollak Williamson, architect Andreia Garcia, leading academics such as Prof Iain Borden and Dr Dani Abulhawa, and cultural leaders Dr Tom Fleming and Claire Cumberlidge.
