Apply for one of 30 fully-funded places on the High Streets: Agents of Change workshop in Bristol, Bradford or Plymouth.
High streets lie at the heart of communities but are under increasing pressure as more people choose to shop online. At the same time, communities are reimagining and regenerating local places by turning disused or underused buildings into creative spaces, offices, retail outlets, and housing.
Stir to Action are working with Architectural Heritage Fund (AHF) to offer 30 fully-funded places on High Streets: Agents for Economic Change workshop in Bristol (13 Nov 2019), Bradford (19 February 2020), and Plymouth (22 April 2020), as part of AHF’s £15 million Transforming Places through Heritage programme to breathe new life into historic high streets and town centres across England.
