Labs are national events for people, groups, and organisations to come together and discuss agendas across creative placemaking and support collaboration across what we all do.

This first network Lab will focus on Community Wealth Building, making our local economies work for communities, in partnership with South of Scotland Enterprise.

What if we measured the strength of our economies by the number of girls riding to school on a bike? A provocation from Katherine Trebeck, a leader in re-imaging how our economies are shaped and measured, was the spark for this event.

Join us in this exploration with speakers from across the fields of economy, geography, and creative innovation to take a look at the successful work that people are already doing and what that looks like for their communities – further programme details to come.

For this Lab we are delighted to be hosted by Old School Thornhill (OST). OST are a development trust for the DG3 area and have just completed the renovation of a beautiful new hub for Thornhill and its wider community as co-working and venue space and HQ for their wider supporting the ideas and needs of their community.

Location Address:

Old School Thornhill, Station Road, Thornhill, DG3 5DF
