We are delighted to host a launch event with RSA Scotland for Matthew Brown and Rhian Jones' high-profile new book, Paint Your Town Red: How Preston Took Back Control and Your Town Can Too.

Paint Your Town Red explores how Preston City Council, lead by Matthew Brown, bypassed Whitehall to create meaningful change through local action, by transferring economic, social and political power back to the communities within Preston.

As community wealth-building principles are being adopted more widely across Scotland, we hope you can join us to find out more about this exciting economic movement.

This event will be hosted by Dr Dominic Chalmers, Adam Smith Business School and Jamie Cooke, head of RSA Scotland. There will be an opportunity to take part in a Q&A at the end of the session.

The event format will be as follows:

  • 12:00 - 12:05 - Introduction
  • 12:05 - 12:30 - Matt talks about the book and the Preston Model
  • 12:30 - 12:40 - Questions from Dr Dominic Chalmers and Jamie Cooke
  • 12:40 - 13:00 - Questions from audience

Please be aware that this event will take place via Zoom.
