Event Description: This Day Conference and Evening Cultural Celebration will look at issues associated with Patrick Geddes, ‘spirit-in-action’,  ‘the place of spirit in his own work’. and 'the nature' of his ‘spirit-at-work’. What is still to be learned, from Geddes then, for our work in the world today? Framed as ‘a learning journey’ or as ‘an inspiration inquiry’… traversing 'the world without' and 'the world within’…, and the evening event will celebrate writings and creativity associated with the theme.
