Faith and Place explorations

Activity: Public engagement and outreachInvited talk


This was the second event of the Faith and Place network, entitled Explorations as it was designed to develop the thinking from the first event, Perspectives. The network leaders identified four themes that had emerged from the first event and so structured Explorations by these themes, allowing more time for each theme to be explored. It was held in Birmingham, the largest local authority in the UK with many new faith groups, and therefore significant for faith, place and planning. The event was designed to then inform the final substantive network event, Futures, especially through the final roundtable discussion which we recorded and transcribed. This was stimulated by a discussion document (internal to the network) that had been produced after the first event.
