So many communities have succeeded in transforming the places in which they live, work and play, yet the relationships between the different parties involved in placemaking remain challenging, and in some cases fail miserably. Who are the right custodians of place? And who has the right to make decisions about the future of our places? Who decides who the 'right' people are and what are the implications?
'Do the right people have power in place?' took place on 19 November 2014 at the Roco Creative Co-op in Sheffield. The debate was supported by the Roco Creative Co-op and Silent Cities and chaired by Sophia de Sousa, Chief Executive of The Glass-House.
