PLACE Lunchbox Talks with Bagel:bagel
Wednesday 4th Aug // 1pm // out of PLACE, 9 Castle Lane
Reconnecting the City // £5 including lunch

Belfast people have been disconnected from the City Centre and from each other by roads and walls for many years. There has also been a disconnection from the decision-making processes that created the roads and walls. However, these disconnections are starting to be broken down by locally elected representatives, community activists and community planners working with community groups like the West Belfast Partnership Board and organisations such as PLACE and Forum for Alternative Belfast. This discussion, involving key architects, community leaders and decision makers will highlight current work aimed at reconnecting parts of the city and reconnecting people to the city-making process. Reconnecting the City is part of Feile an Phobail 2010.

Speakers include: Naomi Long MP, Ciaran Mackel and Geraldine McAteer.

Venue: out of PLACE, 9 Castle Lane, Belfast (beside Cornmarket, opposite Lush & Starbucks)
Cost: £5 including lunch
Payment: Cash or cheque made payable to PLACE (you can pay in advance at PLACE, 40 Fountain Street or on the door)

Still to come in the Lunchbox Talks Series...

Wednesday 11th August // 1pm // Lecture
Primavera Romana: Walking for A U-Turn

A talk by Stalker/ON based on the Slow Cities Movement. Stalker, an interdisciplinary collective involving architects, landscape architects, artists and others, named after the Tarkowsky film, was formed in the early 1990s when radical Italian student movements were at their height. The collective focuses its projects on interstitial urban spaces, migrations of non-European cultures, urban social mobility and living patterns, observation, mapping, site-specific interventions and new media.

18th August // 1pm // Panel Discussion
On the road to nowhere?

What is the future of transport in Belfast and beyond? How usable is the current system? What lessons from elsewhere can be applied to our situation? This panel discussion explores the existing road system within Belfast and plans for the future.

FAB Summer School 2010 - 16th - 20th AUGUST @ University of Ulster, York Street

Following last year's mapping of Belfast's vacant sites, the Forum for Alternative Belfast this year focus their sites on North Belfast:

"This year we want to gather together all those people that will and should inform the development of the north central city.. This area is arguably the most fractured in our city, but it also has a large number of ongoing current projects. - These projects, if brought together in a coherent vision could transform this landscape within the next ten years."

FEE: £50 waged - organisation /£25 Students
