Historically, London has been hailed as an exemplary city in designing for diversity and integration, in part due its patterns of social housing. However, following the Grenfell tragedy, we must ask: is London really designed for everyone? Decisions about the design, planning and management of the cities we live in has a significant impact on our feeling of belonging and security, social mobility and real or imagined barriers between communities. Stance Podcast investigates whether or not inclusive design can help reduce xenophobia and inequality, as well as foster a shared sense of community in London today. Panelists include: Farshid Moussavi – Architect; Lynne Miles – Urban Economist at ARUP; Adam Kaasa – Research Fellow in Architecture at the RCA; Louise Armstrong – Peckham Coal Line.This discussion is part of symposium with COMPAS in collaboration with Counterpoints Arts and The Open University as Tate Exchange Associates.

The Counterpoints Arts Who Are We? programme runs from 22nd - 27th May.
