The new campus for Bristol provides an opportunity to consider some of the broader questions about what it means to be a university in and for the city. Join us for a day of provocation, conversation and creativity. This day is a chance to explore the possible range of forms that being a civic university in the global 21st century might take. We will reflect on past understandings of what being a civic university has meant, as well as imagine what future incarnations might look like.

This is primarily a UoB-focussed event that enables a conversation amongst staff and students with a view to generating potential Brigstow seedcorn project ideas as well as feeding into broader debates across the university.
