  5. 5. Appendix ll Conference Blog People Changing Places: Sustainable Communities = Sustainable Places A glorious spring day at the University of York hosted the end of project conference for People Changing Places - a 12 month creative programme that aims to raise awareness and people's aspirations about good design in the public realm, provide opportunities for multi-disciplinary working and engage communities in the regeneration of their local environment.   For more detailed information on the project, click here for the People changing place site.   Our inspirational venue, the Berrick Saul Building: The new £7.2m development at the heart of the York University campus   Over 70 professionals from across the country gathered to share their ideas and to explore how we can creatively engage communities in the regeneration of their towns and cities. The debate was to be stimulated by talks from leading individuals responsible for changing attitudes, opinions and physical places; through architecture, public consultation and the determination to change the future for the better.   “We're going to demystify the whole concept of what a sustainable community is, and how we create a sustainable place through empowering, engaging and unlocking local talents” Helen Farrar, CABE regional representative & event chair         5
  6. 6. Speakers included:   David Hills, architect, DSDHA David co-founded the award winning architecture practice DSDHA and is a CABE Design Review panel member and a RIBA competitions assessor. Jane Field, Head of Programmes and Services, Beam Jane has a wealth of experience in both education and place-making and has been instrumental in developing the Learning Programmes and Services offered by Beam. Alison Drake, Chair, Castleford Heritage Trust Alison was one of the driving forces behind Castleford’s regeneration and was heavily involved with the Castleford Waterfront Regeneration project featured on the Channel 4 programme ‘Kevin McCloud and the Big Town Plan’. Martyn Coltman, Chair, Bridlington Renaissance Partnership and Chair, Bridlington Town Team Martyn has one overriding passion, his hometown of Bridlington. He is a key leader in raising public perception of the town, and in restoring the pride and past glory of Bridlington. George Ferguson, former president, RIBA and Chair, Ferguson Mann Architects An architect not afraid to speak his mind, George Ferguson is a past president of the RIBA, at which he particularly championed the cause of good urbanism and place making. He has experience in delivering architectural, masterplanning and regeneration projects and is a co-founder of the Academy of Urbanism. Worry not if you missed the event, as you can hear interviews with some of speakers talking about best practice examples of how to creatively engage communities by clicking on their names above. The Berrick Saul conference room at the start of the day.     Provoking new ways of thinking and new ways of working to the professionals physically present at the event, Beam have been working with audio and video specialist for events, Mike Leigh Cooper to provide a constant online presence through social networks such as Twitter.   6
  7. 7. As a means of capturing the events, and to share quotes, audio interviews and photos with other professionals, Mike sent out quotes from the speakers as they were talking as well as photographs of progress and links to audio interviews. Beam's Twitter page (@beam_orangery) was displayed throughout the day on the main conference projection screen, as well as on a plasma TV in the cafe area for delegates and attendees to browse. This proved to be incredibly successful, with many delegates sharing quotes, and engagement with the event from Goop 3D Helen Harrop in York, Diane Conference delegates browsing Becket from Enterprise UK in West Yorkshire, and Twitter. Adrian Riley from Electric Angel in Scarborough. This had been leading on from efforts to promote the project via Twitter throughout the year, which had had success in sharing links to projects such as the Place Making Movement, as shared by Project for Public Spaces (@PPS_placemaking) in New York, and the Chart Scarborough Project as shared by Adrian Riley. We were also very happy to have the support of iPadio, the developers of an audio broadcasting service, who shared a number of our audio interviews with their 1353 followers on their Twttter page (@ipadio).   Anyone can engage with the Twitter #peoplechangingplaces hash tag, which aggregates any tweet with the hash tag contained in it to one single real time stream: so if you listen to any of our content, and like it, then please let us know what you think by sending a tweet to @beam_orangery with your comments and the #peoplechangingplaces hash tag. We really appreciate your engagement so far, and would like to continue our online engagement via such platforms. We are open to any comments and suggestions, and would like to develop a stronger presence; as we are very happy with the results so far, which state that on the 1st April, we had reached 2,553 people via 50 tweets, and our audio interviews have an average of 300 listens – which is great.   You can listen to an interview with Mike Leigh Cooper introducing the use of Twitter during the day, followed by an introduction to the conference by Helen Farrar, who chaired the event, by clicking here.     Our Tweetreach results   7
  8. 8.   Workshops & Group Discussion   For the final part of the day, the delegates broke off into separate groups to participate in workshops lead by our speakers, and to explore their individual thoughts and ideas. These sessions were varied from group discussions based on hypothetical situations, to speed dating style discussions, as led by Alison Drake.   The workshop sessions were successful, and sparked some interesting debate – you can listen to an interview with some delegates who told us how they found the speed dating style workshop here.       Beam staff taking notes during the workshops Wrapping up the day   Finally, to wrap up the day, each group presented a summary of their discussions, followed by a debate surrounding some of the questions that were posed on Twitter, with the responses tweeted back to individuals who asked a questions. As Helen Farrar made her closing speech, the atmosphere was alive with a positive energy after such a productive and entertaining day. The talks had made our delegates cry with laughter, and sit in awe at international and local examples of raising expectations for places like Bridlington, Bristol, Castleford, and beyond. We would like to thank all that have been involved in the events over the last year.     8

Would like to have seen more tangible examples of legacy and impact of ‘arts’ contributing • Different approaches required for different areas • Broad interesting topics and examples – good speakers too • Town charters and Town Teams • Note sure the approaches could be described as ‘different’ • Communities need to be contacted before consultants – they live in a places/space, engage with it.

Any other comments • Thanks • Well done to CABE and Beam – another hugely successful and enjoyable event • Good day, enjoyable and nice cake! • A great day – well done! • Venue and content excellent • George and Alison were inspirational – thank you. I really enjoy the debates about placemaking. • Sadly I still haven’t learnt how to make the day longer than 24 hrs or how to make cash out of endless hours I put into community engagement. Time is the missing element in making a community effective. • Good venue. Liked mix of professionals and interested community people • Excellent event very informative • It did not focus on the actual ways of engaging people much. More speakers examples needed not much new info obtained • Well organized • Very informative and educational • Would like to be invited to more projects like this • Interesting and useful • Very friendly and useful 8. If you have previously participated in People Changing Places please comment on your experience of the overall programme: • First class- we couldn’t have done it without you! • Ace! Inspirational! • Some of the programme has been enlightening and enjoyable as well as a good networking opportunity. One negative comment was about the hideous and alien orange cardboard box structure built in Exhibition Square. This seemed to have no relevance to its environment and building walls seemed conceptually wrong in terms of creating new connectivity. It was the wrong time of year. The traffic continued regardless, and the area was not greened or the public realm improved in anyway. The subsequent vandalism of structure can hardly be surprising. • Inspiring from the beginning of my involvement right to the end – very well organized! • Has broadened my outlook • I think its grate research into community want in order to gain a clear vision   13
  14. 14. • I participated in the PCP from November and I think it was a great job and I had the opportunity to see York from other points of view • Big thanks to Kate Bennett for bending over back ward to include a group I was with. Please make sure future info is accessible (min font 14 plain English, non- reflective surface ect) spread the word build in support costs to enable disabled people for support workers   14
