First of two roundtable events bringing together organisers, activists, researchers, collectives and art practitioners to discuss the future of housing and regeneration in South London

These two roundtable events will bring together organisers, activists, scholars, researchers, collectives, and art practitioners to engage collectively in discussions about both the present and the future of housing and regeneration struggles in South London. The objective is to open a broader debate on the politics of the subject, politics of collective action and the possibilities and potential for new housing realities.

Throughout this century, South London has been a site of urban and housing regeneration. However, housing development projects that are led by capital and land value are undermining the needs of the local population and fostering new social and housing inequalities. Due to this polarisation, there has been a rise of initiatives that oppose these aggressive and violent processes. Individuals, groups and campaigns have been working on developing and deploying various tactics and strategies to defend the rights of local inhabitants, challenge mainstream narratives that enabled this practices and develop alternatives.
