The Public Space Management course is generously funded/supported by the National Lottery. This initiative has been organised by the Archibald Corbett Community Library supported by Eden College.
The Public Space Management Course is a short interactive and practical course designed for people who want to understand or learn more about how public or community spaces such as the local community library or shop, community centre, farm, park or social hub etc.
- are run and developed
- what makes them successful
- the activities and services they offer including how those are identified, designed and delivered
- want to develop some of the skills and experiences required to take on, effectively run, volunteer or work in these spaces; and
- to explore the differences these organisations, make in their communities.
Even though Covid-19 has resulted in many public and community spaces closing their doors or changing how they work, a number are getting creative and entrepreneurial to continue to bring real benefits to people in their communities. Wherever possible, the course will collate and share some of the innovation taking place in public and community spaces, enhancing students’ understanding of their role and impact in our communities.
