On Saturday 21 May, ‘Equal by Design’ had its premiere screening at Bertha DocHouse in the Curzon Bloomsbury Cinema, London.
Based on Peg Rawes’ and Beth Lord’s research from the Equalities of Wellbeing project, the film is a 25-minute documentary about how the philosophy of Spinoza helps us to think about inequality, housing design, and the UK housing crisis.
Joining the project team at the premiere were the film’s director Adam Low, producer Martin Rosenbaum (Lone Star Productions), editor Joanna Crickmay, and sound designer George Taylor. The screening was followed by a panel discussion chaired by Peg Rawes with film contributors Deborah Garvie, Duncan Exley, Peter Barber, Sarah Wigglesworth, Olly Wainwright, and Alex Ely.
Audience members, who joined the discussion and subsequent launch party, included architects, academics, and third sector professionals. Thank you to everyone who participated!
