In times of economic restraint it is particularly important that we encourage creativity in placemaking and develop inspiring and interesting urban environments.

In recent years, RUDI has encouraged discussion about the role artists and the creative community can play in the design, development and delivery of vibrant, culturally relevant and inclusive communities.

This 3rd annual national conference will bring together practicioners involved in placemaking, art and design to explore possibilities for the creation of unique, interesting and stimulating places.


  • Strategies for urban change
  • Artists & the arts on the placemaking agenda
  • Contemporary arts in city development
  • Reclaiming abandoned & neglected urban areas

Designated as a ‘new town’ in 1967, the rapidly growing city of Milton Keynes now faces new challenges and will provide a focus and stimulus for debate and discussion on the day.

Debate will focus on the role of artists and the creative community in making places, the effects of the recession on creativity in placemaking, collaborative working practices and ways of engaging local communities in the creation of inspiring and interesting places.

Speakers include:

  • Will Cousins, Architect, Urban Designer & Director, David Lock Associates

  • Michael Stanley, Director, Modern Art Oxford
