This virtual roundtable event will be hosted by CLOA Executive Member’s Symon Easton and Jayne Knight. The session will cover identifying opportunities in both urban and rural settings, understanding the local drivers, how to build momentum and ensure community ownership and considerations around sustainability.
It will include case study presentations that demonstrate how a First Light Festival, a free 24-hour multi arts festival on the beach in Lowestoft has bolstered pride and underpinned inclusive growth and regeneration in a deprived coastal setting; how an industrial area is being reinvigorated by live music and street food once a month; and how the absence of venue need not be a barrier when you have the great outdoors!
Jon Hunt from Coventry will also be sharing a case study outlining how they use Broadgate Square for Sports Fest to offer a week long programme of free wellbeing and physical activities with local clubs.
There will be an opportunity for open discussion providing CLOA members with a safe space to share common challenges and knowledge regarding opportunities.
