Diversification Strategies to Building a Vibrant & Safe 24/7 Night Time Economy: Moving from Alcohol to Culture, Sports, Leisure and More
New York is no longer the only ‘city that never sleeps’. More and more urban centers are coming alive after dark, serving up a side of their unique identities you don’t see during the day: art and music, culinary delights, sports and exercise, shopping and much more. Building a 24/7 economy of this sort is vital in any city’s positioning as a vibrant, international hub – and calls for its own set of management policies, structures and strategies. Join us at this masterclass to find out more about what cities need to balance diversity of activity with the need for safety in their night time economies, and how ‘nightlife’ is more than bars and pubs – it’s literally about ‘living at night’.
City Planning and Design for
Night Time Economy: Building Vibrant Spaces After Dark
Although the concept of a thriving nightlife scene in cities is nothing new, maximizing the potential of these scenes is something else entirely. City authorities grapple with enterprise zoning, land use and other issues that hinder the development of fully-fledged 24/7 economies. With the right planning and design strategies, a city can catalyze a host of activities after dark that promote urban vitality and vibrancy without sacrificing community cohesion or investing huge amounts in new infrastructure. In this masterclass, you will learn more about identifying and repurposing good venues for night time economy applications, and how this helps reinvigorate stagnant parts of cities and stave off dereliction.
