RE-IMAGINING PUBLIC REALM - A BELFAST CASE STUDY
ACE INSIGHT WEBINAR
RE-IMAGINING PUBLIC REALM - BELFAST
Part of ACE's new Insight webinar series, this free-to-attend event is hosted by ACE Northern Ireland.
Belfast is a city in transition. There has been significant regeneration & investment since the Good Friday Agreement in 1998, but much still remains to be done. Like other cities across the world, Belfast is grappling with the post-pandemic priority of creating a city centre built around people, rather than cars.
Guest speaker Chris McCracken (Linen Quarter BID) explores key themes in Belfast’s recent development, with a specific focus on the current priority of re-imagining public realm.
It will look at the strategies that have shaped the city and some of the major projects completed or underway. Taking the case study of the Linen Quarter, we will also cover how the city centre is being reconfigured to support outdoor hospitality and enhanced social spaces, and promoting a model shift to more sustainable and active travel. The presentation will include the public reception to these changes, the potential reconfiguration of city centre retail, hospitality and offices, and thoughts on future plans for the city.
This webinar will take place on Thursday 21 October from 12.00pm to 12.45pm and is free to attend for any ACE member, no matter their location.
