The City as Canvas: Designing Creative Places - a cities@manchester Urban Forum in conjunction with Design Manchester 2014 Festival
|Dates:||28 October 2014|

Contemporary cities serve as sites for a wide range of interventions by designers, ranging from informal graffiti and temporary installations to community murals and rearrangement of public spaces. Artists and designers have a critical role to play in making cities distinctive, attractive, liveable, and dynamic. In this urban forum – part of cities@manchester’s established series - we will discuss the meaning of design interventions in Manchester and other cities.
