Grass-roots activities can regenerate areas and empower communities to take ownership of their own shared spaces within the city. The panel explores the interplay between ‘top down’ and ‘ground up’ interventions and places in between. What would an entirely co-created city look like? What role can universities play in supporting these kinds of activities? And who participates in participatory place-making?

In association with UWE.
