Changing Places, Changing Lives: Middleport PotteryChanging Places, Changing Lives: Middleport Pottery
Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and The Prince’s Regeneration Trust invite you to join us for an evening of enquiry and debate.
How do projects delivering the re-use of existing and historic buildings deliver meaningful regeneration? Apart from addressing the challenges of physically improving the places they concern, can they actually change people’s lives for the better?
Taking the recently completed regeneration of Middleport Pottery in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent as our key case study (the last working Victorian pottery in the UK) our speakers will look at the Middleport project from a range of perspectives, including people that live nearby and work at the Pottery.
In a debate chaired by ex-English Heritage Chair, and author of the recent report ‘Tackling poverty through culture’ for the Welsh Government Baroness Kay Andrews OBE, we will hear from:
Ros Kerslake, Chief Executive, The Prince’s Regeneration Trust
Harry Wardill, Senior Projects Adviser, The Prince’s Regeneration Trust
Jemma Baskeyfield, Burgess & Leigh Online Manager & Company Historian and Middleport resident for 33 years
Geoff Rich, Studio Leader, Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios
