Play / Space: innovation in the 21st century metropolis

Urban space, rethinking childhood, active play, urban farms, cultural ownership, participation and appropriation

The vision of the independent series is to discuss and define culture, who owns it, who creates it, who follows it, and we are using the potential re-visioning for Crystal Palace as a case study. The group is organising a programme of debates featuring free-thinkers, academics, doers and designers. The series is to promote awareness of Crystal Palace heritage and to create a forward vision for the local community which could engage, encourage and support social well-being. There are also plans to include local residents in a visioning exercise.
