Special Event

Beyond Participation Workshop 1: Louise Dredge / The Glass-House Community Led Design

Dates: 10 Mar - 10 Mar

Show Time: 11am

Tickets: €10

Please note that this event takes place at the Fringe Lab

As part of Beyond Participation 2, take part in a workshop exploring community participation in design. Led by Head of Engagement and Outreach at London’s Glass-House Community Led Design, Louise Dredge, this hands-on workshop will explore the complex set of relationships involved in the design of spaces and places and how local knowledge can inform and inspire good design. It will focus on the process of engagement from a human perspective, and consider how to create opportunities to empower people through participation and collaboration in the design of the built environment.

Louise Dredge leads on creative engagement for projects, research and events, connecting people with the design of their places to shape and inform good, inclusive design, and capturing the learning and impact of this work on people, places and practice. As a Visiting Fellow at the Open University, she has worked extensively on collaborative action research projects, exploring design processes that empower communities and developing innovative approaches and mechanisms to support projects and groups. Before joining The Glass-House in 2011, she worked at the Irish Architecture Foundation, delivering public engagement programmes on architecture and the built environment. Louise holds a Master of Regional and Urban Planning from University College Dublin.
