IAF Reimagine Placemaking Masterclass Series - Registration Open

 

 

 
 

The Irish Architecture Foundation are pleased to present the Reimagine Placemaking Masterclasses series. Three live online training sessions will take place in September 2020 for architects, local community representatives, local authority staff, councillors, stakeholders, community engagement and public art practitioners, representatives from cultural venues or organisations and others actively engaged in placemaking.

Each two-hour masterclass will feature diverse modes of learning including presentations, case studies, break out groups and moderated discussions. It is possible to attend all three masterclasses or any combination of the series, as each masterclass will also work as a stand-alone training session. Registration for the masterclasses is free.
