Vyner Street is a locus for the shifting identity of London’s East End. Artists and creatives moved into the area and integrated themselves into the local culture and communities. However, their arrival was a catalyst for regenerative change that they didn’t necessarily want. Architects play a key role in this economic shift and are still present in Hackney and Tower Hamlets. Should they take a stronger position in the development of the area and the way it affects the original communities and the few remaining artists?  

 

Speakers include: 

Chair: Jane Clossick
Cullinan Richards
Torange Khonsari
Dr. Elanor Warwick
Cordula Weisser
