As part of the final events for Bring Your Own Future we invited a range of speakers to discuss with an audience from Slough’s public, private and community & voluntary sector, how citizen’s can shape the cultural future of Slough. Discussions ranged from language used around diversity to how to promote community events and what was happening in Slough for young people, as well as how to be open, and to embrace, the unexpected.
