Wednesday 3 June

The theme for our meeting on Wednesday 3 June was Animating public space - add comments, recommendations or suggestions here (you will need to request permission to do so). Click here to return to the front page and list of other Talk the Walk meetings.  

As this is an event to give as many people a chance to get to know others in the room, we limit the presentations to only a few minutes each.  Any participant that wants to address the whole room may do so - the more participants electing to do so the less time each of them has to speak!


Presentations to be made on the evening include:

Melissa Bliss - an artist who creates guided walks and soundwalks

Philip Cave - landscape architect

Carlos Cortes - dancer choreographer and visual artist

Des de Moor - will talk about Ramblers' Association's Get Walking Day

Louise Duggan - on the work of CABE Space

Martin Fidler - the Ruskin Walk

Sir Muir Gray - the National Walking Campaign

Peter Heath - Public Realm speicalist from Atkins

Liz Kessler - Open Space strategist, EC1 New Deal, who will talk about the revival of the market on Whitecross Street

Tim Long - on the role of benches in animating public space

Ian Phillips - on ‘Bridging the gap’  - planners and designers create spaces and structures, but people and their activities make them into stimulating places.


You can download a list of participants here: Participants & Profiles 3 June_090607.xls .  We will distribute evaluation sheets at the event but if you missed filling one in, you can download it here Making it better_000210.doc and send it to andrew@talkthewalk.info
