Congress is a valuable learning opportunity
Congress 2022 in Belfast (8-10 June) will be an incredible opportunity to learn from and with the city.
A mixed programme of tours, site workshops, speakers, and cultural performances will provide a fascinating look at urbanism through a Belfast lens.
Theme: Cities Overcoming Challenges
Belfast’s challenges - better collaboration, shaping authentic experiences, building climate leadership, and delivering equitable economic development - are the same questions facing cities worldwide.
Congress in Belfast represents an opportunity to combine some of the current strategic issues - such as A Bolder Vision and the work of the High Streets Task Force and major cultural place-focused cultural initiatives such as UNESCO City of Music and the forthcoming Year of Culture - to explore how people and communities can be engaged in the city’s authentic placemaking.
