Extending Architecture: Training in practices of engaging the public with architecture

An Arts Council training and professional development initiative, managed by Create

As part of its policy and commitment to the public’s engagement with architecture, the Arts Council introduced training for cultural practitioners with an interest in programming, exploring and sharing the cultural and artistic value of architecture with the public.

Over a series of three training sessions in early 2016, participants had the unique opportunity to work with and learn from renowned international practitioners, Todo Por La Praxis (Madrid), Kate Goodwin (London), and Teddy Cruz and Fonna Forman (San Diego/Tijuana). Exploring new attitudes, views and opinions on architecture and the built environment internationally and locally, participants attended an evening keynote lecture and then undertook a day long interactive training session with these highly sought after practitioners.
