Is London dying?

 Is London dying?

Novelist and London psychogeographer Iain Sinclair is joined by Katharine Hibbert, founder of affordable housing enterprise Dot Dot Dot and author of Free: Adventures in the Margins of a Wasteful Society, Angus Hanton of Intergenerational Foundation and Idler editor Tom Hodgkinson for a discussion of the social and cultural significance of London’s property price boom. In many ways, London is booming. The city is buzzing and full of life. But crazy house and rental prices mean that the artists and young people can no longer afford to live here. As a result, we’re seeing a talent drain to Berlin, Lisbon or to more affordable parts of the UK. What can be done? Has London lost its edge?

Come and join the debate at the Conway Hall.

A free podcast of the evening will also be posted on our website and the event will be broadcast by Resonance FM.

Price: £20/£18 members/£10 concessions.
