Skate Nottingham CIC, Forty Two Shop and Ignite Futures presents…

In summer 2019, Nottingham was the first in the UK to host a city-based festival of skate culture, with almost 700 skateboarders coming to the city to skate, film, take photographs, attend exhibitions and panel discussions, party and have fun.

And now, between the 24th of September and 3rd October 2021, with the kind support of the National Lottery Community Fund, Habito Mortgages and the UK Science Festivals Network, the Skateboarding in the City Festival is back!

Thursday 30th September – Q&A
Radical Places panel discussions. Two 90-minute panels will take place between 4pm and 8pm and will help put Nottingham on the map as a global centre for innovating, researching and doing amazing things with skateboarding as a tool for positively transforming urban spaces and communities.

The first panel will be chaired by engineer, designer, maker and skater Bedir Bekar and will discuss the potential to design and build spaces that are inclusive, sustainable and active – with a focus on Sussex Street, Nottingham, the new skate-friendly public space that will open in a few months’ time.

The second panel will look at sociological and political aspects of inclusion, mental health and information – with a strong focus on gender. This panel will be chaired by two young Nottingham skaters, skate coaches and activists, Hannah Shrewsbury and Connor Law. Both panels will include loads of opportunities for questions from the audience and discussion with panel members, and will be filmed and shared widely.

 

Both events will take place in the auditorium at Metronome. We would appreciate advance booking via the Eventbrite links provided – so we can manage numbers and take every step to keep you all safe.
