Conference Series 2018

Curating Spaces of Hope: A Call to Action 

This new conference series is a highly innovative assemblage of research, practice and enterprise, all contributing to the reimagining, reshaping and transforming of our public spaces and partnerships in the North West of England. This series builds on the vision and insight of multiple relational networks that traverse Faith Communities, Local Authorities, the Community and Voluntary Sector and Research Teams at University of Chester and Goldsmiths, University of London.

The William Temple Foundation has been delighted to have supported the development of Spaces of Hope through the relationship between their founder, Matthew Barber FRSA and the Foundation’s Director, Prof. Chris Baker. Chris has supported Matthew in establishing the theoretical, theological and policy driven foundations for Spaces of Hope through recent work in Stockport and Chester in 2016 and 2017 including their flagship Spaces of Hope conference at Chester Cathedral in June 2017.

We commend the Curating Spaces of Hope: Call to Action series to policy makers, faith communities, community and voluntary sector activists and researchers. The event will equip you with a practical toolkit for building and sustaining capacity for leadership, social enterprise and coproduction that shapes our public spaces our public policies, our public practices and the illustrate the public good of our research.
