Experiencing Places and Spaces: City Planning with your Senses (on campus session)
Inspired by COP26 to make some potential changes in your local area? Curious about how city planners see places and what you might be able to do to influence change? Come and find out more about how to use creative methods rooted in social science and urban studies to explore and explain your area.
You can expect to learn about field drawing skills, sound mapping, found poetry and mental maps and what these creative methods can help you learn about to explore your own area. Bring your camera phone, and a sense of curiosity!
A simplified child friendly version of activities will be produced and made available for curious kids to go on their own treasure hunt.
Led by Dr Alison McCandlish, tutor of City Planning at the University of Glasgow. Alison is a chartered town planner and uses creative methods in her teaching and research.
Format: Guided walking tour incorporating creative urban planning based workshop activities followed by review and sharing session.
