Swindon Festival of Literature
Tue 15 May
CHARLES LANDRY – on The Civic City in a Nomadic World.
Presented in association with Switch on to Swindon
What’s going on in our towns and our cities today? What is their identity, culture, and distinctiveness? Is the anytime, anyplace, anyone, anywhere phenomenon the new norm? Are we becoming nomadic? Or is the greatest yearning still to belong? Do we need to invent a new and meaningful cultural anchorage in our sprawling urban landscape? What’s actually going on in our towns and our cities and what part do we play in it? How can we all be more switched on to what our own town or city has to offer?
In his new, ground-breaking, and richly-illustrated book, international speaker, inventor of the Creative City concept, and author of The Art of City Making, Charles Landry helps us navigate the evolving urban landscape.
This event is a must for anyone who cares about their own town or city, today!
There are no booking fees on this performance. Delivery charges may still apply.
