How can we hear the voices currently missing from architectural discourse? Could bringing practice from all kinds of disciplines together help put people at the heart of it all? This conversational event compiles experience and examples of how people are involved in shaping places and spaces, as well as policy and decisions across government that shapes the world around them. Explore the best examples of public engagement in architecture, planning and design from Scotland and beyond.

Hear about ambitious work going on at Scottish Government creating a strategic framework for public participation, in the context of open government. Take part in a conversation about how these practices fit in context of designing places and spaces. How might we learn from one another? Could connecting these practices help people and communities voices to be heard in all aspects of our built environment, governments and places of power today.
