Defence of the Public Realm
April 3rd, 2012

Over the last month or so I have been helping to pull together this event which is part of the London Festival of Architecture 2012. The list of speakers is strong plus we have a great venue. Please repost and link like crazy!

The privatisation of our public spaces along with arbitrary restrictions and controls – backed up with state of the art monitoring systems – is not only a threat to individual liberty, it also reveals a fundamental democratic deficit for society as a whole.

Who controls the ‘public’ realm? In whose name and for what purpose is this space used? Why is the protester, photographer, skateboarder, rough sleeper and graffiti writer demonised and excluded?

Why are local authorities selling off record amounts of parks, playing fields and allotments to the private sector with little or no oversight from communities and local people?

During the Olympic Games, the biggest mobilisation of military and security forces since the Second World War is to be implemented. How will our freedom to move through and engage in these spaces be monitored and restricted during this time?

The Speakers

Andrew Altman, Chief Executive, Olympic Park Legacy Company Limited.

Iain Borden, Professor of Architecture and Urban Culture at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL and author of Skateboarding Space and the City: Architecture and the Body.

Anna Minton, writer and journalist. Author of Ground Control.

Robin Priestley, skateboarder and founding member of the Space Hijackers.

Anna Strongman, Project Director at Argent Group, working on Estate Management at King’s Cross Group.

Marc Vallée, documentary photographer whose work covers the London graffiti scene, anti-skateboarding architecture and political dissent.

Olly Zanetti, writer and journalist specialising in environmental issues, urbanism and political cultures.

Join the debate and come to Defence of the Public Realm free public event: 6pm, Monday 25th June 2012 at the Great Hall, Bishopsgate Institute, 230 Bishopsgate, London, EC2M 4QH.

The event will be chaired by Grant Smith, the acclaimed architectural photographer. Event organised and hosted by Grant Smith, Jonathan Warren and Marc Vallée. With support from INGMEDIA.
