Future of Community Festival

If you want to find out what community means - and whether or why it matters - this event is a must.


With the appointment of David Miliband as the first Minister for Communities, it is clear that the government takes the decline of community very seriously. But can it do anything to rediscover 'community values'?
Do official interventions help or hinder? What does community mean today and how does it differ from the past? Does community bind us together or divide us?

The one-day event includes workshops on:

What are sustainable communities?
Localism versus parochialism
Making - or faking - civil society
New Urbanism or old
Multiculturalism: diversity or integration
Policing responsible behaviour
community counselling: self-esteem or self-obsession?

If you want to find out what's in store for cities in general and London in particular; to challenge the prevailing direction of urban policy; or simply to meet and question the leading architectural practitioners and critics, this event is a must.

Speakers include: Geoff Mulgan, director, The Young Foundation; Ferdinand Mount, author "Mind the Gap"; Andrew Stevens, political editor, City Mayors; Jonathan Meades, broadcaster; Ken Yeang, international architect; Michael Owens, head of development policy, London Development Agency; David Edgar, National Theatre playwright; David Goodhart, editor, Prospect magazine; Dan Sturges, US consultant to GM and Segway; Claire Fox, director, Institute of Ideas and Radio 4's Moral Maze; Richard Waterhouse, chief executive, RIBA Enterprises; Richard Sennett, author, "Respect"; Jeremy Stangroom, co-editor The Philosophers' Magazine; Sir Michael Bichard, Chair of the Legal Services Commission; Frank Furedi, author "Politics of Fear: Beyond Left and Right"; Tristram Hunt, historian and author of "Building Jerusalem: The Rise and Fall of the Victorian City"; Ben Page, director, MORI Social Reseach Institute; Saskia Sassen, Ralph Lewis Professor of Sociology
