The first in-person event in our Building recovery programme will be a field trip to Poplar HARCA's Aberfeldy estate. As part of an estate wide regeneration, Poplar HARCA have worked with partners and with the local community to create a 'friendly, welcoming place for everyone which is cean, safe an secure'.
As well as nearly 1000 homes, the project incorporates a linear park, an upgraded high street, support for local businesses and Poplar works (studio space for creatives in the fashion industry).
On this field trip, we wil take in a broach range of sites to see and hear first hand how Poplar HARCA has worked with the local community to:
- Improve skills of local people
- Use culture and creativity as a catalyst for regeneration
- Incorproate active travel in the neighbourhood
- Reduce inequalities and imrpove the lives of those who could most serve to benefit from a fairer city
This event is for those working on estate or neighbourhood-wide regneration who want to learn about the role community, cuture, public space and skills can play in reducing inequalities.
All necessary health and safetey precautions will be taken and we will review the format according to any changes in guidance. Weather permitting, we will aim for the event to be outside as much as possible. All participants will be asked to wear a mask (unless exempt).
