Panel discussion on heritage, the arts and regeneration. Thursday 16th of March 7:30 pm - 9:00pm (inc. Q&A session) at Deptford Lounge, 9 Giffin Square SE8 4RJ, Deptford London.


Taking as a rudiment the cultural history of Deptford and the issues around the preservation of it due to the redevelopment in the area, the panel discussion will focus in the relations between local community and the heritage, their importance and the role of the art in these relations. 

Furthermore, the discussion will expand to how art, artist and art institution shape the area’s regeneration and look at current debates that connect the arts to gentrification, such as the resent Boyle Heights protests in Los Angeles, Sharon Zukin’s and Neil Smith’s position in their writings amongst others.
