New mebranes: how cities organise their memory

Dr Geoff Mulgan, Director of the Institute of Community Studies presents this lecture.

Cities are places where people meet, do things, change themselves and the world around them. But most of their memories are hidden - in books, museums, or in people's own brains.

How we are rooted in time and space, and our sense of connectedness, is vital to well-being and health. There are many possible new ways to make the collective experience of a place more accessible and alive. Geoff Mulgan will set out the idea of constructing new 'membranes' that capture past stories, history as well as current events and concerns.
