19th April 2018: Launch of Urban Dialogues

Join us to celebrate the launch of Urban Dialogues, an initiative recently started within the University of Plymouth’s Arts Institute and linked to the Centre for Sustainable Futures. The initiative joins various disciplines and faculties from across the University, together with external collaborators. Our work is grounded in community-based learning and learning-supported community development. This initiative extends the University’s sustainability work and history of community engagement, and embraces the difference disparate disciplines bring to their praxis, and seeks to investigate and build upon the intersections between these trajectories. Such dialogically-oriented practice situates existing and emerging agendas into a multilayered framework enabling more joined-up thinking on pedagogy and community development.

Join us both to celebrate our ambitions, and to discuss both the potential and challenges of our agenda.

We will be joined on the evening by our guest speakers who include:
– Jackie Clift, CEO of POP Plus (Plymouth Octopus Project – powering Plymouth’s voluntary sector)
– Hazel Stuteley OBE, Connecting Communities
– Lynne Sullivan OBE, Royal Institute of British Architects Ambassador for Climate Change (2015-2017)

Date: Thursday 19 April
Time: 4:30 – 6:00 PM
Venue: Room 206–207, Roland Levinsky Building, University of Plymouth

Refreshments and nibbles will be available. RSVP: r4brown@plymouth.ac.uk
