Julie's Bicycle and The Whitworth invite you to join a conversation about cultural buildings and the pivotal role they play in shaping our values and understanding of 'sustainability'

About

Over the last decade the idea that culture, communities, economics and the environment – in short 'sustainability' – are intimately connected has become pretty much accepted. What is less clear is how this translates into practice; too often different aspects of sustainability conflict with one another and bigger picture thinking is buried under a 'business-as usual' approach to cultural management.

Through the story of The Whitworth's new building, Head of Collections Care & Access, Nicola Walker and a panel of guest speakers will explore 'cultural value' and what it means to create forward-thinking, sustainable spaces.

Speakers Include: Nicola WalkerJohn Holden and Dr James Evans
