Free, drop in
Developing some of the themes raised in A Solid Relic in a Glazed-over City, Merseyside Civic Society’s annual Civic Day looks at the state of the Liverpool city region, focusing this year on identity, amenity and community on Merseyside.
As civic space is being eroded, with cuts affecting libraries, swimming pools and other facilities, what are the alternatives for maintaining and extending civic engagement? This participative and fun day provides a pertinent opportunity to hear imaginative ideas from a range of speakers and communities that are restoring and running their own amenities like pubs, shops, schools and gardens.
Come along and join in the discussions, workshops and other activities and find out how you can take an active role in your neighbourhood.
