Over the last decade, Grizedale Arts has initiated and driven the cultural and economic development of historic buildings and institutions at Lawson Park and in Coniston with the ambition to introduce new models of participation in the development of the village as a place to live, produce and share. This evening panel discussion will explore the process of re-imagining and rebuilding the current Coniston Cricket Pavilion, alongside other ongoing projects such as the Coniston Institute, Lawson Park Farm and the Honest Shop.

Speakers will include the Winner of the architecture competition for the Cricket Pavilion from the shortlist which currently consists of Larissa Johnston & Mervyn Rodrigues, Ullmayersylvester and The SCHTIP Collective; and Kieran Long, Senior Curator of Contemporary Architecture, Design and Digital at the V&A. The discussion will be chaired by Adam Sutherland, Director of Grizedale Arts.
