City Speak II - Street markets E-mail

Town hall meeting: 10am (2hrs 30 mins)
Workshop: 2:30pm (2hrs)

Street markets, podiums, sidewalks, footbridges, country parks, roof gardens, rock streams, nullahs, bus stops… Squeezed between the mountains and the sea, and competing with high-rise buildings and busy freeways, public space in Hong Kong is constantly taking on new forms. But how much public space do we need? How should it be managed? When is it open to everyone? Is it acceptable to have public space monopolised by a select group of users or activities?

Attend this town hall meeting to discuss what does and does not work for you. The meeting will be followed by a workshop to create your own space (please bring your own caremas).
