The Academy of Urbanism Annual Congress | The Producer City - an urbanism for the 21st century? | 15 - 17 May 2013

Taking the theme The Producer City, delegates from a wide variety of disciplines and locations will assemble to explore how post-industrial towns and cities can forge new roles for themselves. Studying one of the UK’s leading examples, we will learn how Bradford has re-discovered its productive edge by combining creative processes with technology, placemaking and international marketing.

The Congress will draw inspiration from a range of UK and European speakers addressing the challenges of the 21st century productive city, focusing on creative analysis and practice around the economics of place, the culture of place, the shape of place, and the competitiveness of place. We will consider the role of heritage in guided tours of the city centre and Saltaire village, as well as the impact of digital urbanism in this, the world’s first UNESCO City of Film.
In a participatory learning exchange over the three days, Academicians will contribute their expertise to Bradford’s emergent City Plan thinking and policy formulation, adding value to our host city, in exchange for transferable ideas to apply elsewhere.
