MSA Praxis, a BA (Hons) Architecture third year atelier at Manchester School of Architecture led by Helen Aston and Stephen McCusker, will be holding an engagement event at Stretford Public Hall on 14 October.

Issues being addressed include, The Longford Essoldo Cinema, the local library, housing, the public realm, transport and additional community assets.
