Royal | Docks | Works – INSIDE + EDGE

To celebrate the ongoing community mapping process being carried out in the Royal Docks neighbourhood between February and July 2019, Royal Docks Communities Voice is organising a programme of 2 events exploring four selected themes addressing the concept, interpretation and quality of boundary as part of the LFA 2019 in two venues over two weekends.

Come along to this first Royal | Docks | Works 2019 community workshop event on Saturday 15th June between 11am and 3pm in the floating Good Hotel where we will be sharing ideas and great food whilst exploring the following themes:
Inside - Enclosed
• An Island - Bounded by intention - A ‘man-made’ place: Timeline exhibition of the physical making of the RD using mapping and imagery
• Digging In - Commerce and community - In the city/outlands: Profile series of talks on economy and people in action - place in the city - a contested future
Edge - Exchanged
• Shoreline - Natural assets - landing and leaving - Connections - river city: Guided walk, exploration and talk along the foreshore
• Dockside - Shared resource - common interest: Community asset mapping trail, workshop and exhibit

The Royal | Docks | Works programme for the LFA 2019 examines the progressive urban process that has made and is still remaking this city edgeland, uncovering the active and hidden landscape via participatory and co creative acts of exploration, proposition and reflection. The work will look specifically at the practice of planning and design in shaping the ‘island in the east’ as a marketable asset, a city resource and shared place for fostering local economies, communities and cultures
