The Welsh Government’s new regeneration framework, Vibrant and Viable Places, states that arts and culture can provide social, economic and environmental benefits and support the delivery of locally derived plans for the development of people and places, in particular town centres, coastal communities and areas of social deprivation.

The event will promote discussion around the value of public art projects and explore different approaches to their development and implementation within the context of regeneration schemes.

Aimed at anyone with an interest or involvement in public art and regeneration schemes, the event is free but booking is essential.

Refreshments and lunch will be provided.

A programme and directions to the venue will be e-mailed to delegates before the event.

The event will be recorded for website use.
