Democratising the City: Places & Spaces for Open Debate & Dialogue

A lecture in the Harris Museum's Discover Preston gallery

Wednesday 8 June 2016 at UCLan Media Innovation Studio

Join us for the first of two events exploring the future of our public institutions.

Cities are dynamic, diverse and ever-changing environments, so it can be hard to find spaces and places for debate. Can institutions such as museums, libraries and universities offer the kind of open forum needed for active citizenship?

This event brings together fresh perspectives on the changing nature of cities in the 21st century. Speakers from UCLan, the Harris and Lancashire County Council will provoke the debate, with the opportunity for audience members to pose their own questions.
