From Charlotte Biszewski MAMDP alumna – You are warmly invited to join us for the opening of the We Can Make // Test Space on Thursday 11th May at Knowle West Media Centre.
We Can Make explores new approaches to the housing crisis that are at their heart citizen-led. We have been busy working with local people, artists and architects to develop new ideas and practical ways in which the citizen-sector can play a bigger role in who gets to build homes, where and how.
The We Can Make// Test Space shares the research and journey so far and invites you to get involved, give your feed back and test some of the ideas.
The event includes:
A participatory workshop (4:30-6:30pm)- Money, Models & Making It Work- where we will present the research so far, a beta version of how citizen-led housing could work, explore what’s missing and how it could work better.
Celebration Opening of the Test Space (6:30-8pm), featuring drinks, conversation & unveiling of new artworks including a Collaborative Wall-Paper Collection, audio stories, and new photography celebrating the green heritage of Knowle West.
I do hope you will be able to join us for what promises to be an extra-special event. Please book your place at: www.wecanmaketestspace.eventbrite.co.uk.
