The Importance of the Creative Sector in Placemaking

2 – 4.30pm

Dance City

Join Creative Central NCL for the first event as part of Creatively Centred, a series of lively discussions and expert lectures.

Guest speaker Shain Shapiro is one of the world’s leading music and cultural policy thinkers. For this event, Shain talks with Sarah Green, Chief Executive of Newcastle Gateshead Initiative about his book This Must Be The Place, which introduces and examines music’s relationship to cities: that is to say, not the influence cities have on music, but the powerful impact music can have on how cities are developed, built, managed and governed.

After which, a panel discussion with experts in the fields of music, policy and placemaking explores the strategies being employed to integrate creativity and placemaking.

This event is presented in partnership with Generator.
