The event series included a workshop on place-based regeneration

This summer, SURF arranged a series of learning events with the 2015 SURF Award winning projects. The event series asked what transferable lessons can be drawn from these projects’ developments and impacts. A combined event report summarises the main learning outcomes.

The first workshop in the series was held in Dundee, and explored community linked infrastructure with colleagues from the 2015 SURF Award winning Ullapool Harbour Trust and Helmsdale Community Development Trust initiatives.

The second event, in Glasgow, investigated the current context for place-based regeneration, featuring project managers from Kilmarnock Urban Development Plan, Barrhead Regeneration Initiative, and Art & Living Laurieston.

The third workshop, in Edinburgh, looked at inventive approaches to employability with the final 2015 SURF Award category winner, The Wheatley Pledge.
