The People’s Pier – Regeneration, community, and popular culture heritage
6pm on 27 June at The Bevy Community Pub
Speaker: Olu Jenzen, University of Brighton
Today only fifty nine of the original hundred or so British seaside piers remain, and many of those are under threat. Despite this downturn piers remain important to the coastal communities and are often at the heart of costal regeneration projects. However, regeneration processes are complex and not always inclusive. This talk presents findings from two case studies exploring the new phenomena of ’the community pier’: The Hastings Pier and the Clevedon Pier.
Brains at the Bevy talks are a series of short and enlightening talks from local academics organised by The University of Brighton CUPP programme and hosted by the Bevy Community Pub
