With our Call for Entries now officially open, if you’re thinking of running an event for the 2020 London Festival of Architecture, you won’t want to miss our brilliant new series of Festival seminars!
Kick-starting this year’s sessions is our Festival Event Workshop – the perfect opportunity to find out more about how you can get the most out of planning and running your events. Whether you’re part of an organisation or organising an event as an individual, whatever your reason for joining us at LFA2020, this workshop is designed to help you gain helpful tips and skills on what makes a successful Festival event. We’re here to help you make your event the best it can be, and we will look at different formats of events, how to address the festival theme, and will analyse what events will attract the most attention.

In this session, we will cover:
- types of events
- developing a clear event idea
- writing an appealing event description
- opportunities in Festival Hubs
- finding a suitable venue
- facilitating possible collaborations
The workshop will be delivered by Rosa Rogina, the Festival’s Head of Programme and André Holmqvist, LFA Programme Manager, who help to ensure the quality and diversity of all events as part of the LFA programme each year. Working closely with our curation panel, they know exactly what events work and which are likely to get overlooked.
The event is kindly hosted by our LFA Benefactors Elliott Wood at The Building Society, their new co-working and collaboration space in Fitzrovia. The event is free to attend but spaces are limited – to find out more and secure your place, sign up here.
This event takes place on Tuesday 20 November, starting promptly at 9am with coffee and networking from 8:30am.
