Foundation’s CEO to give talk on placemaking for UCL’s The Bartlett School of Planning

Foundation for Future London’s CEO Maria Adebowale-Schwarte will give a special public lecture on the role of placemaking and grantmaking and philanthropy for UCL’s The Bartlett School of Planning on Thursday 27 January 2022.

Maria’s lecture will focus on the key themes from her book ‘The Place Making Factor‘, which looks at how we define the environment, place and placemaking. In an increasingly urbanised world, charitable foundations, grant makers and philanthropists have a leadership role to invest in collaborative place-led programmes.

Maria will explore the positive disruption and its role in creating equitable places and social value regeneration through to creativity, health and wellbeing.

The talk will draw on the work of the Foundation for Future London in the East London boroughs of Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.

BSL Lecture: The Place Making Factor: Disrupting Siloed Thinking to Make Better Places, Thursday 27 January 2022 6pm–7:30 pm, online. Free to attend.
