The purpose of the Civic Voice Design Award Masterclasses is to build on from the Civic Voice Design Awards study tours.
They are focused on sharing knowledge and expertise about schemes shortlisted for the Civic Voice Design Awards. These seminars provide information and insight from individuals involved in a variety of schemes and share strategies and tactics involved to deliver successful new build, restoration, public realm improvement projects. The masterclass is designed to provide participants with real life examples of effective community participation techniques to achieve high quality design projects from a variety of projects.
The unique part of this event is hearing how different projects including housing, public realm and heritage projects have all been successful
The sessions ask questions such as:
· What were the challenges to overcome in making the project happen?
· How did the project ensure local buy in from communities to the project?
· What were the challenges facing the built environment in the future? ·
· How do you see the public consultation process changing in the next 5 – 10 years?
The first masterclass was organised in 2017 and more information can be accessed here.
