CCSE’s Professor David McGillivray and Dr Severin Guillard are in Gdańsk, Poland, this week attending the conference “Public Spaces: Culture and Integration in Europe” as part of their HERA-funded project FESTSPACE.  David and Severin are accompanied by their four partner institutions from London, Dublin, Gothenburg and Barcelona and will be talking about the role of festivals and events in generating inclusive public space in Europe.

The Festspace team will be writing a detailed blog about their experiences at the event, and we will post highlights on CCSE Twitter, however in the meantime to find out more about the conference, and follow the debates of the event (over 11 and 12 September):
