Wednesday 4th June 2014
Volcano Theatre, 229 High Street, Swansea SA1 1NY
The workshop will be organized and facilitated by NOEL ISHERWOOD ASSOCIATES.
As well as discussions, presentations and provocations, the workshop will include a walk around the neighbourhood, artists at work, and small-group sessions focussing on specific subjects including ideas for a vacant site in the High Street. There will also be an opportunity to re-imagine the High Street and its long-term sustainability at a time when traditional retailing is changing out of all recognition and an alternative approach is required.
We look forward to welcoming you to the event, however if you are unable to attend, we would be grateful if you would recommend a neighbour or colleague who would be able to attend on your behalf. You are welcome to drop in for part of the day and contribute where you can.
