To accompany our new series of live events and debates Conversations sees British Council welcome Charles Landry, leading authority on creativity and the future of cities to Belfast on Thursday 23 October.
Charles will be talking between 7-8pm in the Black Box in Belfast, considering how culture and place can invigorate and revitalise the economy of a city. With a narrative that takes Belfast as its starting point, Charles will also look at many of the international cities he has visited, worked with and been inspired by.
After Charles’ talk, champions of the moving image OneDotZero will be screening Terrain – a selection of works that celebrate the city, architecture and the urban landscape. Accompanying Terrain, we are working with DJs S. Hackett, D. Holmes & S. Watson to curate a selection of tunes that celebrates the city.
This is a wonderful opportunity to hear and see some of the most current and innovative urban practice involved in making cities better places to live, love, work and play.
British Council has a number of free tickets for this event and if you would like to book a complimentary ticket again please get in touch with Colette.Norwood@britishcouncil.org otherwise you can get tickets from the Belfast Festival at Queens or the Black Box on the evening priced £5.
