IHBC’s Brighton School – ‘Historic Places: People Places’

Brighton Day School Webinar Sessions: 18 June 2021

  • Afternoon: 3.30-5.30 BST
Chair David McDonald, IHBC Chair
Interlocutor: Rosemarie McQueen, Historic England Commissioner

IHBC’s 2021 virtual ‘Day School’ examines how we can best change and sustain places for the benefit of people, led by expert practitioners boasting international, national and local profiles and experiences.

Presentations and discussions look at how we can make better ‘People Places’ out of the places we have, from the most functional to the most historic.

  • The Morning Session looks at tools and strategies used to improve places, notably DESIGN, REGENERATION and INVESTMENT, and how everyone can play a role in framing those changes.
  • The Afternoon Session explores the lessons that can be learned as people engage in changing places by assessing impacts from ECONOMIC measures as well as in INVESTIGATION and REGULATION.
