The eighth episode of The Word explores placemaking and its role in shaping communities. The Covid-19 lockdown made us hyper-local and detail-observant – daily walks around our local streets, rather ghostly closed off townscapes, parks and green spaces have become a lifeline for many.
We are joined by Louise Wyman, Strategic Director of Growth and Development at Manchester City Council and BECG’s Head of Placecrafting, Eddie McAtominey, as together they discuss how as a nation our use of places has changed as a result of the pandemic and how we have perhaps found a new sense of community as a result of the hyper-local focus.
