The Value of Cultural Developments for Our Communities
10:00 - 12:00

And yet, so often we end up with generic facilities that neither fully respond to community needs, nor celebrate its unique characteristics, or suffer from a lack of ambition resulting in an outcome that does not respond to the opportunity. How can we ensure that the development process for new facilities incorporates these community views, and leads to the greatest possible impact and value?
