This panel discussion is a part of a three week program of Euston Town's MAKE SPACE - a project creatively making use of available space in the area to uplift the trading environment, invite a new audience to explore Euston and bring a cultural event to people living and working here. This program Hope for Tomorrow uses exhibitions, panel discussions and workshops to explore contemporary issues, delving in to the exciting projects taking place and discussing new ideas to help society adapt to and address these challenges.
How art, design and technology can help us adapt to challenges.
Euston Station has demonstrated how as major developments take place, neighbouring areas can undergo drastic change, with several knock-on effects. Our high streets are struggling, and independent businesses are under huge pressure. Communities and culture are threatened by regeneration. This is the regular story of our cities today.
Our 6 panellists bring experience in art, technology and public realm design to discuss what our future cities should feature in order for us to address a change in our environment and ever more complex issues – from a depleted ecosystem, to violence, to a housing crisis. How do our future cities look? What must be incorporated? And how do we achieve this?
