How can underused city spaces be used to bring together community and reimagine their potential?
HERE+NOW will be talking about how we can use our urban spaces more productively, illustrated with examples from their Space To Sit community build event, Hold Me Dear outdoor community photography exhibition and Wasteland Collective interventions and research.
A Landscape Architect passionate about making places better, Liz Thomas co-founded HERE+NOW in 2014 to put people back at the heart of design for the built environment. HERE+NOW is an Edinburgh-based landscape architecture studio that specialises in co-design. Integrating community engagement, prototyping, events and exhibitions from the very start of the design process, HERE+NOW work with local people to reimagine their local places through both longer term design outcomes and more temporary interventions.
