Ed’s Place, the pop-up space in the former George Henry Lee building supported by the University of Liverpool and local social enterprise, PLACED, has a number of events and activities planned which aim to bring people together to reimagine the city centre.
Ed’s Place runs until 23 September and the public can contribute to an exhibition about the city centre, submit their own ideas and suggestions for improving areas of the city and take part in a range of organised activities.
A tour of the city centre, led by Ronni Hughes, which will explore the city’s breathing spaces – these are the places, sometimes public squares and sometimes just places in between others, where people can sit a while, breathe, reflect, watch people go by, check phones, talk to friends or maybe even eat the lunch we’ve brought with us. Starts 3pm, free to join.
A debate about Liverpool city centre – the public spaces, the potential, the changes people would like to see, the things people love. Questions are set by the audience and panel members change every ten minutes. You can participate as a panel member or as an audience member and you can submit a question.
Join the discussion about green spaces and greenery in the city with a creative workshop. Book your place here
