In the spirit of free and open discourse and because the concepts, ideologies and issues relating to urban studies, cultural heritage and creative practice require diverse skill sets and collaborative thinking and working, we will be participating in an Open Space meeting for the second half of our day.

Open Space is a meeting format that is based on the principle of self-organization. This means that, you, as participants, set the meeting agenda and determine the outcomes. This occurs through an initial facilitated discussion that will set the agenda of issues and the schedule/location of discussion sessions. Participants will then be free to attend and take part in whichever sessions they feel they can contribute to or learn from.
