The FESTSPACE research team descended en-masse to the beautiful city of Gdańsk, Poland, this week to participate in the Humanities in the Europan Area (HERA) conference titled “Public Spaces: Culture and Integration in Europe”, held at the iconic European Solidarity Centre. Led by Project Lead, Professor David McGillivray, the team took up the opportunity to meet with the other 19 funded projects, develop their own research plans further, and explore Gdansk’s various public spaces.
The research team is busy conducting fieldwork in each site city – Glasgow, London, Dublin, Barcelona and Gothenburg and working towards their first publications, focused on festivals and inclusivity in urban public space and the role of festivals and events in urban design.
