Learning By Doing

In the past three months – as well as making keynote presentations to conferences and events in cities such as Glasgow, Helsinki, Prague, Lund and Göteborg – Lia Ghilardi delivered training courses and masterclasses for Norwegian urban practitioners, architects and urban designers wishing to learn the techniques of place cultural DNA mapping and collaborative cultural masterplanning. The training sessions were held in London (combined with visits to socially innovative projects in the city) and in Helsinki as part of a joint learning programme for cultural workers and planners from Norway and Finland.
