The Leisure Society – Free co-design event

28 February @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for our upcoming Glass-House WEdesign event, The Leisure Society at 6pm on Wednesday 28 February at Live Works in Sheffield.
The idea of the ‘leisure society’ was initially proposed in the 1960s and aimed to explore the potential of people having more free time, given the changes in working conditions in post-industrialised countries.
So what does a leisure society mean in today’s landscape, when leisure time is both so important and so contested? What role does leisure play in our daily lives, and how does this affect people, places and our planet?
At this free co-design event, in collaboration with students and tutors from the  University of Sheffield’s School of Architecture, we’ll explore these ideas and work together to co-design propositions for change through discussion, debate and making activities, followed by informal networking.

About the WEdesign series:


This year’s Glass-House WEdesign series: People, Place, Planet, combines a programme of online and in-person events in cities across the UK with an evolving collection of Think Pieces, (added to weekly) from a range of inspiring voices across sectors and disciplines. All our WEdesign events are free and open to anyone with an interest in joining the conversation.


People, Place, Planet focuses on how we balance our personal needs, the collective needs of our communities and those of our increasingly fragile planet within placemaking.


How can we think differently about how we shape our places? How can we collaborate more through design and placemaking to value and respect people, place and planet equally?


We want to hear your ideas and experiences, and explore how to create change together
