Dear All,
As part of our 2010 lecture series the Irish Landscape Institute would like to invite you to a talk and workshop on 'Inclusive Landscapes' this Thursday 11th February by Maureen Gilbert and Feargus McGarvey - a concept of designing for all kinds of people in different kinds of landscape types - an idea that developed out of collaboration on 'Building for Everyone' and 'Play Space Guidelines'.

Is there too much emphasis placed by designers on the visual beauty of our landscapes and not enough appreciation for the people who actually use them? The speakers will discuss ‘Inclusive Landscapes’ as a concept of designing for all kinds of people in different landscape types — an idea that developed out of their collaboration on ‘Building for Everyone’ and ‘Play Space Guidelines’.

Feargus McGarvey is a Landscape Architect and associate Director with Mitchell + Associates where he has headed up a diverse range of garden, landscape and urban design projects such as Dundrum Town Centre, Smithfield Market, and Eyre Square, Galway. He was President of the Irish Landscape Institute from 1999–2001.

Maureen Gilbert is an independent disability and equality consultant. She provides expertise, mentoring, training, research and facilitation on disability and equality policy, strategy and practice to UN bodies, Government Departments and agencies, local authorities, third-level institutions, professional bodies, community groups and other national and  international organisations, both commercial and not-for-profit.
We'd like to encourage a lively debate and contribution from the audience.  The talk is free and all are welcome - so if you know anyone you think would like to attend please let them know.  We'd like to invite all to join us in the Lombard pub at the corner of Westland Row and Pearse Street after the talk.

Hope to see you there,
ILI Lectures/Education
