Exploring engaged spaces in community-university partnership
Keywords:Placemaking, Public engagement, Participation, Knowledge exchange,
The Community University Partnership Programme (CUPP) has been operating at the University of Brighton for the past 10 years. This article explores the different types of space we think need to exist to support a variety of partnership and engaged work. We therefore explore our understandings of shared or ‘engaged’ spaces as a physical, virtual and relational phenomenon in this context.
