Thank you to all those who have engaged with our workshops on urban sound this week at The MAC, Belfast. We have had an outstanding week of discussions with a wide range of participants from organisations including Belfast City Council, Mid-Ulster Planning Department, Department for Communities Belfast, Landscape Planning and Development Belfast, Healthy Ageing Strategic Partnership, Ards Planning, Belfast Healthy Cities -- as well as an inspiring group of architects, landscape architects, urban planners, developers, policymakers, artists and academics. It has been an intense and invigorating week.
Special thanks to Ken Sterrett, Matilde Meireles and Conor McCaffery for their contributions to the workshop, and to the staff of PLACE NI, the MAC and Queen's University Belfast for their support. The workshops were generously sponsored by the Arts & Humanities Research Council (UK) as part of our project 'Hearing Trouble: Sound Art in Post-Conflict Cities'. A report on these workshops will be available on www.recomposingthecity.org later this month.
