This must be the place: placemaking with young people

Date: 8 November 2023
Time: 1:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Location: The Woodville, Woodville Place, Gravesend, UK
Third-party event

Join us for this half-day conference exploring creative placemaking strategies for and by young people.

Featuring insight and learning from Cement Fields’ long-term project working with young people in Ebbsfleet, and guest speakers working in the sector across the UK, the conference will explore innovative strategies for artists, arts organisations, architects, local authorities and developers to engage young people creatively in the development and regeneration of their towns and cities.

The day will close with the launch of a new film commission created for Ebbsfleet by artist and filmmaker Charlotte Ginsborg. Her new series of short films, Our future, our past, whisper it to me, has been developed in collaboration with local residents, and combines poetry, performance, and documentary to investigate people’s sense of belonging, what home means to them, their experiences of the area, its history, and their vision for the future.

This event is delivered in collaboration with Ebbsfleet Development Corporation and Creative Estuary.
