Workhouse Union, in partnership with Self Organised Architecture (SOA) and Cloughjordan Co-Housing invites you to take part in Making Neighbourhoods, a National Seminar exploring creative approaches to community-led neighbourhood making.
The seminar marks the national launch of Self Organised Architecture’s Reimagining Elderhood project through film, presentation and exhibition. The Reimagining Elderhood project features architect-led, community co-design approaches to ageing and housing in three neighbourhoods across the island of Ireland: Ballyhackamore, Belfast; Balbriggan, Dublin and Coal Quay, Cork.
Making Neighbourhoods is an opportunity to share, network and learn from each other. The day will include panel conversations and workshops focused around the themes of Inclusive Neighbourhoods, Town Centre Reuse & Revitalisation, Community Co-Design, Ageing and Housing, Creating spaces for hospitality and activism. The afternoon will also include opportunities to join local community activists and champions exploring the wider neighbourhood of Dublin 8.
This seminar is situated within the broader Making Neighbourhoods project led by Workhouse Union in partnership with Cloughjordan CoHousing and Self Organised Architecture (SOA). In addition to the seminar event, spatial practitioners will take part in a residency at Cloughjordan, from 22-30 June and the Making Neighbourhoods project will culminate in publication (Autumn 2023).
