Presented as part of the new 2021 Cambridge Festival, Children are Place-makers is a discussion about the work of ArtScapers, a children-centric programme exploring the North West Cambridge Development through the
lens of the arts programme curated by CAS Consultancy. The panel includes colleagues from programmes in Bath and Berlin with similar values and practices.
ArtScapers takes an open-ended approach in which creative activity provides new modes of relating to Cambridge as a developing city. It invites children and their communities to join in creatively with the process of change.
