Chathamís transformation, arts and heritage will be the main focus of the 10th issue of Medway1 magazine, to be launched on 11 April.
Representatives of Medway Council and the business community will attend the event at BNP Paribas offices in Aldermanbury Square, London, from 5.30-7.30.
The new edition of the business publication tracking the regeneration of Medway will look at Chatham Placemaking, the project which has seen Medway Council work with Network Rail and a number of artists to regenerate the area between Chatham station and the waterfront.
It will also speak to members of the area’s creative community to find out the latest initiatives to involve people in the arts and look at plans to mark the 350th anniversary of the Battle of Medway.
A section will explore how the local business community has changed and grown over the last 10 years, transforming an area traditionally known for manufacturing into an entrepreneurial hub.
And film-maker Simon Williams, who has worked with international musicians and artists, will explain why he has chosen Chatham to base his company, O Production.
Councillor Alan Jarrett, leader of the council, and Richard Hicks, director of regeneration, community and culture, will be among the attendees at the magazine’s launch event, along with Paul McGowan, head of development consulting and agency at BNP Paribas.
