What’s Ed’s Place all about?
Ed’s Place is popping-up on the ground floor of the old George Henry Lee building in Liverpool from Thursday 30th August until Sunday 23rd September.
Ed’s Place is a creative space for everyone to come together and reimagine our city centre. It is a place for you to share your ideas and join the conversation about how to make Liverpool city centre a greener and more vibrant place for us all.
Why Ed’s Place?
Last summer, PLACED toured Liverpool in their campervan called Ed, giving people an opportunity to have their say on regeneration plans and how places could be improved.
People said that they want to be more involved in planning and decisions, but don’t feel listened to.
In response, PLACED decided to set up Ed’s Place.
Who’s behind Ed’s Place?
Ed’s Place is project from award-winning social enterprise PLACED, who work with people of all ages to enable them to share their views about places and spaces through creative education and engagement programmes. We make better places together.
PLACED are working in partnership with the University of Liverpool’s School of Environmental Sciences.
You can drop in Wednesday-Monday to get involved and view interactive exhibitions.
They’ve also got a jam-packed activity programme. There’s something for everyone, with special activities for families, children and older people.
Have your say in debates and workshops. Take a walking or running tour. Have a go at crafts. Share memories over a cup of tea. Do some shared reading. Take Afternoon Tea in George Henry Lee. Or just watch the world go by.
