About the lecture

The contemporary city is forever changing, but too often it is to suit the needs of capital rather than people. However, that doesn't mean that people aren’t finding ways to use the city in very different, engaging, fun, political or subversive ways to express their 'right to the city'. This lecture will give an overview of the ideas, theories and case studies of how city places and spaces are developing, and importantly, how urban citizens are responding to that change with changes of their own, and by doing so creating a city that is not just for profit, but also for people. This lecture links directly to the Changing Places theme at A Level.
