WHAT FUTURE FOR DUBLIN’S DOCKLANDS?

 

21st SEPTEMBER 2013

A conference which will address some of the core concerns of indigenous communities in Dublin’s Docklands as they face a new round of urban regeneration – one of the first major urban-regeneration programmes to be pursued by the Irish state in the wake of the property crash.

 Attendance is invited from the Community itself (residents and community organisations from Dublin’s Docklands and inner city), Statutory bodies (Department of Environment and Dublin City Council officers engaged in planning and housing); Public Representatives from the Docklands constituencies and All who have an interest in or previous involvement with urban regeneration initiatives across Dublin’s inner city.

Date:           9am-1pm, Saturday 21st September 2013

Venue:        Robert Emmet Theatre, Arts Building,

  Trinity College Dublin

The programme of speakers will comprise community representatives who have participated directly in the regeneration of Dublin’s Docklands and academics who have engaged extensively with urban regeneration and public-housing related issues both in Ireland and abroad.
