City Workshops

City Performance Workshop

6th-7th October 2011, London

The Edge facilitated and participated in the City Performance Workshop conference organised by the Netherlands, Italian and Danish Embassies in London. The focus was on examining a shared city experience, looking at how our cities perform and how we need them to perform. The workshops brought together four distinct national experiences, mixing professionals from different countries and disciplines in a series of groups in order to develop group thinking in response to a series of short presentations.
