End of Year Review + Talk by Kevin Murray

Our bi-annual review event to review recent activities and find out what’s planned for the next six months. This Review will take a special look at The Urbanism Awards – from how and when we run nominations through to the ceremony. Members are invited to join us to contribute their ideas and views to help shape the programme for next year and beyond. The Review will be followed by a special talk by outgoing AoU Director Kevin Murray.

This is part of Kevin Murray’s ‘farewell reflections’ as he steps down as a founding Director on our Board, having been involved with John Thompson, George Ferguson and others since before the launch of the AoU. It should be a fun, memorable, but also thought provoking occasion. If you care about the AoU and direction of urbanism, please come along.   Book Now
