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.

Repeal the 8th: Maser's Mural Reinstalled at Project Arts Centre

Since it was founded in 1966, Project Arts Centre has always placed the vision and freedom of expression of the artist at the centre of our work. We believe that all art is, in some way or other, indelibly political because it relates to the workings of the society from which it emerges. This artwork by Maser was first programmed at Project Arts Centre in July 2016 and was removed due to planning legislation. According to The Planning & Development Regulations 2001, Schedule 2, Part 2, Exempted Developments, Class 14, the mural is not subject to planning permission in the…
