When we think about the places in which we live, work and play, we often explore our feelings of connectedness and our sense of (or lack of) community. What aspects of design and how we deliver them determine whether or not we feel like we belong somewhere? How do we understand and define belonging across the diverse variables of our society like age, faith, race, nationality and tenure of housing? Can we foster a sense of belonging by participating in our places?
Held at Stratford Circus Arts Centre on 9 March 2016, this was the final debate in our 2015/16 Debate Series.
