  • Do you want to bridge the gap between ideas and reality?
  • Are you not sure how changes are made out there in the real world?
  • Do you want to know how to work with people and within systems?
  • What does success look like?
  • What can be learned from failure?

Join us over the next few months for a series of talks where we'll explore these questions and more, with voices from urbanism in the public, private and charity sectors. Come armed with questions and a curious mind as we'll be opening the floor to discussions!

  • Entrance is free but ticketed
  • Talks start at 6pm and you'll find some drinks and snacks waiting!
  • Check individual events for locations.
