SL Site Futures Workshop (Ecology and Landscape) with University of Manchester

2nd July 2019 from 10:00 - 16:00   Download to calendar

University of Manchester (UoM) invite you to a series of workshops at Rosehill Theatre in Whitehaven, on Thursday 13 June, Friday 14 June, and Tuesday 2 July, each from 10am to 4pm (lunch and refreshments provided). The workshops are part of a research project meant to generate debate on potential ‘end states’, or ‘site futures’, for the Sellafield site: what might Sellafield look like in 2140?

This question has ethical, ecological, financial, technical, aesthetic, and socioeconomic implications that we want to explore in groups of about 25 people, from interested local residents to professionals in the nuclear industry. UoM are interested in drawing on your experience, ideas, and imagination in thinking about possible futures for the site. UoM will also work towards creative output by an artist participating in the project. The workshops are an opportunity for you to express views on future place making in West Cumbria in a collaborative atmosphere.

Each workshop, at the Rosehill Theatre, will have a different perspective: 

13 June: ‘art and heritage’

14 June: ‘science and technology’

2 July: ‘ecology and landscape’

UoM will not determine a solution for Sellafield’s ‘end state’. Rather, their goal is to gain a wealth of views and ideas from workshop participants that will generate further questions for future exploration.

Please book to attend and indicate if you will attend all three workshops, or one or two (please clarify which!), and specify any dietary requirements.
