This half-day conference will look at ‘creative placemaking’ across London and examine placemaking strategies across the capital. Is culture and creativity essential for successful long-term places to thrive and flourish, or is it just a ‘nice-to-have’?

How does space for creativity and culture add to a place, be it a new piece of city or an existing one? And what do we really mean today by ‘culture’ in the context of placemaking? How can cultural strategies be fully embedded into regeneration projects to ensure the best approach to placemaking is there from the start? How do we measure its value?
Developers, architects, local authorities and other key stakeholders will discuss best practice schemes and exemplars in the capital, examining how London can improve its creative placemaking.
