City Park - Arts of Place: Place Event

Thu, 15th Jul, 2010

The Studio, Thursday 15 July 2010, 4.30pm to 8.00pm

Beam invites you the third in the series of Arts of Place events to explore the nuts and bolts of regeneration and consider how artists can be successfully integrated into the process.

Arts of Place
is a creative programme of temporary commissions, events and learning designed to raise the cultural profile of Bradford’s key regeneration project, City Park. The Arts of Place programme is being produced by Beam in collaboration with Bradford Council.

The event will question:

What extra value can artists bring to regeneration schemes?

How can artists and built environment professionals work successfully together to make projects better for clients, stakeholders, and the public?

What common ground, if any, do artists and built environment share?

You should attend if:

You are living or working in Bradford and are interested in or involved in regeneration, creativity or education.
Free to attend.
