Our symposium happily coincides with National Civic Day, 25th June, which is about celebrating the city where you live. Bristol Civic Society are organising an event to celebrate. They say:
“Our theme in Bristol is to celebrate our public spaces. We plan, amongst other things, a big “Teddy Bears Picnic” event in the “Bear Pit” at St James Barton Roundabout and wherever you are in Bristol to make the day a mass participation event using digital media (mobile phones, Facebook, Twitter etc) to enable the general public to send messages, photos, videos and pinpoint their location from other public spaces in Bristol but we need your help. Our hope is to display an online interactive map showing activity across the city, on a screen in the Bear Pit, and if possible the big screen in Millennium Square. We hope to come up with something that will catch the imagination of everyone in Bristol.”
So, even more reason to head down to Bristol for the day!
