The Breakfast Talk is open to anyone interested in placemaking and place as a disruptor. Chaired by Maria Adebowale-Schwarte. The invited panellists are Caroline Mason CBE, CEO of the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, and Wendy Lewis Jackson, Managing Director, Detroit, Kresge Foundation.

The Roundtable is a curated forum for senior decision-makers across the philanthropy sector – foundations, charities, grant makers and philanthropists. It is part of the 2017 Placemaking Week and offers the rare opportunity for philanthropists from around the world to gather, share learning, swap ideas and create collaborations.  

The objective is to explore, map and discuss how socially inclusive placemaking and place approaches to philanthropy and grant making can be used to join up social, economic, and environmental giving; and generate place-led thinking on current issues; social inclusion, health, regeneration, equality, climate change, environment, good growth, arts and culture.

We are also offering an optional tour off Soho, London.

Lunch and refreshments included.
