Tuesday 19 July: Peg Rawes, Adam Low and Martin Rosenbaum attended an in-house screening at Shelter (UK), and hosted by Deborah Garvie, for staff from London and Shelter Scotland. The discussion took in the current political context, the need to bring out positive approaches to tackling the issues (e.g. Land Trusts or examples of good practice from the EU/International housing contexts), and the value of ‘reason’ for engendering better notions of wellbeing and self-determination across society.
Last night saw the first of our London screenings of project film Equal by Design. Held in the atmospheric Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre at University College London, and organized by UrbanLab, the event featured lively discussion between our panel of speakers (Film contributors Deborah Garvie, Peter Barber, and Sarah Wigglesworth; Clare Melhuish from UrbanLab and Michael Edwards from UCL, alongside Peg Rawes and Beth Lord) and an audience of 150. The event had a long waiting list of over 180 people keen to join the discussion!
By popular demand, we are pleased to announce a second London screening of the film on 28 June at 7:00 at University College London, organized once again by our friends at UrbanLab. Free tickets are likely to go fast. Book your ticket here.

After the screening, Rosemary Brotchie of Shelter Scotland gave a short response, explaining some of the developments and challenges in the housing crisis specific to Scotland. This was followed by an audience Q&A with her, the project team, and the film team.
