Urban Art Forum
The Urban Art Forum looks at the reciprocal relationships between public art and the city and the role of urban art in regeneration and placemaking.
The Urban Art Forum is a ULI UK initiative which focuses on the reciprocal relationships between public art, culture and music and the city. The Forum showcases innovative creators and patrons, examines planned and realised artistic works that enhance stakeholder value, and seeks to understand the collaborative processes that makes urban art possible.
Some of the issues the ULI UK Urban Art Forum will address include:
What part do artists play in urban regeneration?
Creative placemaking – the effectiveness of public art in achieving more convivial urban environments and social, cultural, and economic identity of a place.
Impact of urban art on property values?
Artists workspace affordability?
Temporary uses as part of redevelopment strategy?
Measuring footfall generated by urban art?
Urban art as a wayfinding/neighbourhood exploration in the city?
Urban art, health and wellbeing
