Event / Solving intractable problems using creativity

June 30, 2015 @ 18:30 - 21:00 BST

Following on from the first, and very successful, event in our 2015 series on ‘The Creative City’, which explored The Origins and Futures of the Creative City, the Young Urbanists are pleased to announce the second event, Solving intractable problems using creativity.

The event, kindly being hosted by BDP at their offices in Clerkenwell, will be chaired by the inventor of the Creative City concept, Charles Landry AoU of Comedia. Our speakers will use examples from their work to demonstrate how creative solutions have been used to address urban challenges, including exploring the concept of the Creative Citizen, and a new creative quarter in Eindhoven called Strijp-S.

Speakers include:

Thom Aussems – Chief Executive Officer at Trudo
Louise Dredge YU – Outreach and Impact Manager at The Glass-House Community Led Design
Liane Hartley – Director at Mend and Founder of Urbanistas UK
Daisy Froud AoU – Founder & Head of Participation at AOC and Lecturer at The Bartlett School of Architecture

Drinks and snacks will be provided. The event is FREE for Young Urbanist members and Academicians. There is a charge of £5 for non-members.

Spaces are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment!
