Contemporary Art Society Consultancy: Public Space and Culture After the Virus

A conversation between architects, urbanists and cultural place makers

Limited space available. Please RSVP to to receive your private Zoom meeting link

The massive societal changes wrought by 2020 are being keenly felt in cities throughout the world. Coronavirus has kept us apart; Black Lives Matter has brought thousands onto the streets. Economies are tumbling alongside contested civic statuary. What will be the role of culture in public space as we collectively move forward? What might we do differently and what is integral to maintaining cultural place making agendas?

CAS Consultancy has worked over the past ten years to develop cultural placemaking strategies that embed social and community value in public realm developments. Join a distinguished panel to consider the future of the urban realm and the role of culture in supporting new behaviours and ways of considering social space.
