Guest speaker Will Alsop OBE is the star attraction at Creative Calderdale’s August event.
He will talk about his vision for the renaissance of satellite towns such as Halifax. His return to Calderdale coincides with huge redevelopment work in Halifax including the Piece Hall, Halifax Library, Broad Street Plaza and Northgate. Hannah Crank, of Creative Calderdale said: “We are delighted to welcome Will back to Halifax after almost a decade, a lot has changed in the town since then. We can’t wait to hear his views on what we have achieved and what we still have planned.” Tickets for the event at the Elsie Whiteley Innovation Centre, Hopwood Lane, Halifax, on Thursday, August 15, are free to creative, digital and cultural professionals and can be obtained from http://willalsop.eventbrite.co.uk/
