Glasgow City Council is delighted to invite you to attend a webinar to discuss the Animating Spaces Grant Fund, which is one strand of the new Glasgow Town Centre Action Programme Grant. The webinar will be on Wednesday 11th November, 2-3.30pm.
Glasgow’s network of town centres and local shopping areas are one of the city’s greatest assets as it moves towards the target of net zero carbon by 2030. The network is crucial to the social and economic life of the city’s communities and this role has been highlighted by the challenges of Covid-19.
Using funding from Scottish Government’s Covid-19 economic stimulus, Animating Spaces will provide new funding for communities to develop temporary interventions to help animate the spaces created for safe movement and trading within our town centres. This new fund will allow qualitative works which were beyond the scope of the Spaces for People programme. Glasgow’s town centres have a huge diversity in townscape, function and the characteristic of the communities they serve. This webinar will demonstrate how other projects have flourished in their local spaces and will launch the new grant fund. A question and answer session will be held at the end.
Chair: Duncan Booker, Glasgow City Council
Speakers: Brian Evans, Glasgow City Urbanist; Ann Laird, Byres Road Improvement Group / Community Champion; Phil Prentice, Scotland’s Towns Partnership; Speaker tbc, Bike for Good and Keri Isdale, Glasgow City Council
