Source: London is Changing
Join Iain Sinclair, Anna Minton, Tom Bolton and Helen Parton for a discussion on London, how it is changing, how it affects us and what can be done about it.
Anger on the streets of Brixton, protests on the street of Norton Folgate: the anger at changing neighbourhoods and the desire to preserve Londonâ€™s historical patches has rarely been stronger. Be it locals being priced out of their old area, the bulldozers moving in on beloved buildings everyone is know that London is changing. Some are excited, some are nervous and some are angry.
Before the discussion begins, representatives of some London protest groups will give short presentations on the parts of London they wish to protect or preserve.

EVENING EVENT: Iain Sinclair and Will Self are two of the most important contemporary writers on London.
Their books, like Sinclairâ€™s Lud Heat, and Downriver, and Selfâ€™s Dorian and Umbrella explore the darker, haunting aspects of the city. They are also both inveterate walkers and have traversed much of London on foot. They discuss their enduring fascination with the capital and what it means for their work.
