Summary

How do you design for community in an increasingly connected and over-populated world?

James Winter has an answer for that.

In an inspiring morning, James explored how our urban environments are becoming increasingly populated. With his experience as the founding Director of Brand X; a non-profit arts organisation who for the past 15 years have worked with property developers to repurpose their under-utilised spaces into cultural assets.

He discussed - how we ensure that healthy communities thrive while we live closer yet are feeling so isolated; What role cultural infrastructure plays in enabling connection - and gave insight into the benefits of providing affordable space for artists to inspire a renewed sense of belonging, harmony and pride of place for the entire community.
