Subject: 29th July Booking for 'Radical Places' workshop - National Lottery & Learning Cities session

Message: Hi - re: email correspondence with Alice Ullathorne and Danielle Rowe - following Skate Nottingham CIC's Festival of Science and Curiosity workshop at 38 Carrington Street in February, we'd like to book the space for an academic, practitioner and public workshop (FREE spaces limited by Event Brite booking) to start our National Lottery-funded 'Skateboarding in the City' festival; which will bring together academics, public policy professionals and young skaters locally and from all over the world (including from Tampere, Finland and Dayton, Ohio) to discuss current projects using skateboarding to achieve an active, inclusive public realm, to share skills, and to identify funding and collaboration opportunities. This will precede a larger public event in the evening (venue tbc) with talks from Prof Iain Borden, deputy dean at The Bartlett, UCL. Discussions are ongoing with Think NG to badge this workshop and event as a RSA Learning Cities activity

Phone number: 0775 967 2005

Proposed Event / Exhibition / meeting details: This would be a free, public event (with numbers limited via free Event Brite pre-booking) - with the venue booking fee paid from our National Lottery Community Fund grant. The event would be on Monday the 29th of July, and would start at 10am and finish at 4pm with a break for lunch (catering not required). A maximum of 40 guests (including speakers and organisers) would be present.
Activities will include formal presentations (requiring use of the venue's projector and screen); Q&A panel discussions; and practical sessions (such as drawing conceptual maps of cities - and how young people's collective identity related to space - with the 'accidental youthclubs' project team from the University of Northumbria).
The only resources needed from the venue are: projector and screen; tables (4-5) and chairs. We will supply bottled water and disposable glasses. Participants will be reminded that no alcohol can be consumed on the premises.

A full draft programme can be shared with you immediately. We would very happily promote on social media tagging 38 Carrington Street - as advised by you. This one day workshop will be part of a wider 'Skateboarding in the City' festival, with visitors coming to Nottingham from all over the world to discuss new approaches to active and inclusive cities and to watch and take part in world class skateboarding the year prior to the Tokyo Olympics.
