We will invite people to join team make:good, some of the amazing people who have participated in our projects and industry peers to come together for an intimate 'Food for Thought' dinner, talking about the boundaries to creating more equitable public spaces in London.
Food is one of the most powerful tools to bring people together, which is why it would be a centrepiece of our event. A delicious meal served on sharing platters will be accompanied by a menu of conversation starters and mini-talks that spark discussions around the theme of boundaries. Attendees will hear from people who are not architects about their experiences of the production of public space as we try to unpick why there are so many invisible and physical boundaries to people accessing and using space that should be for all.
Speakers and conversation starters for the evening include Gurmeet Sian, Founder of award-winning architecture and design studio Office Sian, Steve Wong, Placemaking Manager for New West End, Nasra Abdullahi from team make:good and Rolanda Norman-Gay from one of our resident engagement projects in South London.
Although this will be an intimate event for 20 – 25 people we intend to extend the reach of the dinner beyond attendees via the use of audio, photography and written word to capture the conversations, which will be broadcasted during and after the event.
Due to the limited capacity of the event, attendance will primarily be on an invite-only basis. However, there will be a small number of spaces available upon application - to apply for one of these spots, please follow the event booking link.
*Please note that this is a ticket only event*
