A new series of 4x4 making places will take place in March 2007. This will be the seventh year that 4x4 has brought together an expert, informed, complementary and eclectic mix of speakers to stimulate the debate on how we make the places we live in, what we want them to be and what the future holds.

The series theme for 2007 will be “Connections”.

Our places and cultures depend on connections. These range from resource connections delivering food, water and energy, to connections of knowledge, creativity, practical coordination and community understanding.

4x4 making places 2007 will explore connections: making and mapping, new and old networks, ways of connecting and analysing, connections for learning, coping with continuity and change, connecting people and cultures, creative connections, larger connections required to respond to climate change and connections between local and global resources.

Speakers and chairs will include designers, commentators, artists, urbanists, authors, policy makers, advisors, academics and activists. Once again 4x4 will draw in a mix of regional, national and international contributors.

The titles for the 4 weeks of 4x4 2007 will be
Week 1: Culturing Change,
Week 2: Culturing Community
Week 3: Culturing Creativity
Week 4: Culturing Climate
