Thursday 24th June 6.30-8.30 at the Midland Arts Centre (MAC) Cannon Hill Park
Chamberlain Forum discussion led by Dr Alison Millward looking into what parks and open spaces mean for life in the city. How do we use open spaces? Do they change the way we behave? Who should manage and look after them? Are they an extravagance or a necessity?
Alison Milward is a leading environmental consultant and an expert in the design and management of green space. Join her and a panel including Fredy Temalema of Birmingham Open Spaces Forum and Simon Baddeley of Handsworth Allotments Information Group to discuss what parks, allotments, playgrounds and shared open spaces mean to the city.
The discussion is part of a series organised by Chamberlain Forum. It aims to get people talking about city cultures and thinking about what ‘Big Society’ looks like in Birmingham. Results and conclusions from the discussion series will be published in 2011.
The Cultures of Birmingham series continues on 21st July with a discussion on the Culture of Manufacturing.
