Sadly we have had to postpone planned community gardening days at the piazza due to the government announcement of national lockdown, but the planters at the piazza don’t know that and they still need some TLC. Mindful of the isolation lockdown can bring, we are happy to facilitate some covid-safe community gardening.
The Piazza was used as an example of good practice in a recent talk at the Centre of Gravity exhibition at the old Gardiner Haskins building that ended yesterday. Alternative Approaches to Architecture- working with students & communities was organised by local residents Rachel Sara, Professor of Architecture at Birmingham School of Architecture and Design and Anna Haydock-Wilson with guest speaker Thomas Sale, currently furloughed from his job as Project Manager for Don Eain, a participatory design practice in Myanmar. It was presented by Bristol Artist-Led Forum, a growing network of artists working with communities for social change, environmental improvement and increase in well-being.
Here are the presentations and documentation from the event.
