Theatres Trust Conference 17: Theatres & Placemaking will take place on Tuesday 17
October at the Lyric Hammersmith, London, discussing the role of theatres and wider
cultural infrastructure within placemaking. The conference will examine and debate a
number of issues around this vital topic, including the contribution theatre buildings can
make towards the regeneration, economic growth, vibrancy and well-being of a community.
There will be inspiring case studies and opportunities to debate a range of topics, including: the contribution of theatre buildings to regeneration, economic growth and wellbeing; local authorities championing theatre buildings and wider cultural provision in their plans; encouraging and supporting local communities to value and protect their local theatre and to take an active role in cultural planning; how to design and run our theatres as democratic, inclusive environments to foster a sense of ownership and civic pride and how planners, developers and theatres can work together to ensure excellent cultural infrastructure.
