Wales Regeneration Summit 2014; Regenerating Wales: Recreating the future of Welsh Towns and Cities

Thursday 23rd October, Liberty Stadium, Swansea

The 2014 summit follows on from the successful event held in November 2012. The key theme this time will be town centres in Wales, including sessions on residentialisation of towns and cities, urban poverty, and the importance of infrastructure programmes to deliver regeneration. The summit will provide updates on the Welsh Government’s Vibrant and Viable Places programme and the progress of Business Improvement Districts (BIDs). It will also provide opportunities for learning from other town centre initiatives in Wales and elsewhere.

To complement the activities of the Wales Regeneration Summit in Swansea this year, CREW is organising an afternoon and evening of FREE activities the day before the Summit, beginning with the official launch of the ‘Welsh Towns Network’ and an exploration into the future development of all of the networks which we are currently hosting.

The Venues: The fringe activities are being hosted in venues provided by Coastal Housing in Swansea City Centre. All of the activities will take place in ’temporary use’ buildings, from vacant shops to the ex ‘Iceland’ superstore. All of the venues are central, close to Coastal’s ‘Urban Village’and are a short walk from Swansea Central station. Please see Traveline Cymru for public transport routes and information.

The Activities: In addition to our network events, we will be hosting a series of early evening workshops and finishing off the evening at Volcano Theatre with a showing of ‘Requiem for Detroit’.
