The aim of this project is to make cultural spaces more inclusive towards people who are or have been homeless in the past. During the next two weeks we will be creating design strategies for three main aspects of cultural spaces; the approach, the threshold and the foyer. We will then apply these strategies to a selection of cultural sites in the city and use the output from these case studies to contribute to the production of a downloadable design guide to improve such spaces. Our project whas the potential to make a real difference in the way new and existing cultural spaces are designed, with incivility as an integral part of the design process. Students please make sure to add yourselves to our Facebook group to make sure you are up to date with everything.

The Panel for Cultural Spaces' Responses to Homelessness

A multitude of cultural spaces were discussed at the summit, including theatres, concert halls, museums, libraries, art galleries and open spaces. The panels' main focus was that supervisors are made aware of the situation with homeless people in these cultural spaces, and a conversation was started about how this can be achieved. One of the main objectives discussed was the creation of a set of guidelines for new or existing cultural spaces, to make them more accessible and welcoming for people who are or have been homeless. It is this objective that we are going to help with!
