A Manifesto for the Arts in Place
In Spring 2018 A Manifesto for the Arts in Place was launched at the Big Meet 8. The manifesto embodies the long-term ambitions of the Arts and Place working group to promote the role of artists and the arts in putting culture at the heart of placemaking.
In January 2013 Ed Vaizey, Minister for Culture, Communications and the Creative Industries, asked Sir Terry Farrell to undertake a national review of architecture and the built environment. This Review was undertaken independently with the at Farrells and advised by a panel of 11 industry leaders with a breadth of experience that covers education, outreach, urbanism, architecture, property and philosophy.
A visual and textual anthology of interdisciplinary dialogues which explore different relationships with place.
