(Studio 25 - Green Precinct)   
What does cultural and industrial heritage mean for urban renewal? Join Frontyard at Scratch Art Space for a futuring discussion about the Sydenham Creative Hub. We will explore the questions: What kinds of spaces are needed to keep creativity flowing in neighbourhoods? Are there unexplored synergies between the needs of artists and manufacturers that can help shape more creative futures for everybody? In this session we will be hearing from experts who have been actively working towards alternative futures and we will work together to articulate alternative and preferred futures that matter to us. Bring your wild and modest ideas, your critiques of the status quo, and an open mind.
