Mapping Belfast - A Workshop for Children

This Saturday (31st October), PLACE is holding an event in Belfast City Centre for children to explore and create maps of their city experience. 

Meeting at Belfast City Hall at 10.00am, participants will follow a guided walk through the city to PLACE- the Built Environment Centre on Lower Garfield Street (opposite Castle Court), where they will be given the opportunity to ‘draw’ their experience of the city as a map.

Children will receive a goody bag at the end of the event. 

The event will end at 12.00noon. The event is primarily aimed at children from 6-11 but others are very welcome!

Date: Thursday 27th January
Venue: Conference Room, Pearse Street Library, Dublin 2
Time: Doors open 17h45pm, Lecture commences 18h15

Harry has experience of working at a high level in statutory, voluntary and private sectors so he is well placed to understand the benefits and risks of working in all three when it comes to generating quality public places. For 20 years he was appointed as an expert to the European Commission in consumer safety and child safety. He is also a co-author of a guide to the European Standard for the Safety of Playground Equipment, published DIN, the German Standards Organisation and now available in 6 languages. He is currently on a European Standards Organisation (CEN) working group looking at playground safety in relation to children with special needs.

Through working with Richter Spielgeraete, operating out of Bavaria, Harry spent much of his time helping to establish innovative and exciting playspaces across Europe. He is a frequent speaker on the international scene particularly on the subject of the balance between play value and safety and passionately believes in allowing all children the chance, through play, to reach their full potential whatever their ability or circumstances. He is currently a board member of Play Scotland.
