Inclusive Spaces: Queering Public Space
Juni 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
A webinar on the relationship between queer communities and public spaces and the concept of ‘designing in diversity‘.
About this event
Join our expert panel of speakers as they discuss how – by considering diversity at early stages of design and planning – public spaces can become more accessible to marginalised and disempowered groups.
Despite the emergence of queer enclaves in many cities across the world, there is still an urgent need to rethink the development of safe public spaces. The rise in hate crimes in recent years calls for interventions which increase inclusion and acceptance of marginalised groups, not least LGBTQ+ people, and create more welcoming, hospitable environments for all members of these communities.
In Queering Public Space, a session run in collaboration between Arup and the University of Westminster, our panel will address these issues and question:
- What are the key characteristics that contribute to queering public space?
- How can we protect what remains of queer memory in our cities?
- How can we move beyond the ‘gayborhood’ towards creating public spaces for all?
