The Creative Estuary co-location initiative, including two pilot projects, research and learning, is designed to enable us to create a new strategy for embedding culture into new communities and developing best practice models with national relevance and impact.
The University of Kent’s School of Architecture and Planning (KSAP) convenes this exciting work on behalf of the Creative Estuary partners. The school is supporting joint working and learning between the two pilot sites, enabling engagement with communities of practice and the development of the cultural planning guidance toolkit. Funded by Creative Estuary two areas in the Thames Estuary region are piloting cultural co-location, Ebbsfleet Garden City and a major regeneration scheme, Purfleet-on-Thames, in Essex.
Across Creative Estuary we draw on a diverse range of experts drawn from a range of sectors including, local and national government, policy makers, and the creative, development and financial industries. The Cultural Co-Location Advisory Group members will help to shape the overarching cultural co-location project and act as ambassadors, advisors and critical friends to our work.
We were delighted for Max Farrell to accept our invitation as Chair. Max is Founder & CEO of the London Collective, a network of built environment experts and creatives fighting to improve people’s lives and the planet’s prospects. Max’s expertise lies in placemaking and communications.
