The programme is supported by Peabody as we mark our 160th anniversary and draw on our experience of regeneration, renewal and positive change in Thamesmead.

Open to everyone with an interest in the built environment, this series of public events will discuss stewardship – the long-term care of buildings and open spaces – and its role in urban development.

‘Who Makes the City?’ is a four-part series of panel debates introducing people from a wide range of professions who are making, maintaining and managing buildings and open spaces in cities across the UK.

The first event in the series –  ‘A New Piece of City: How Do We Imagine the Future of London, and Who Is It For?’ – is taking taking place on 4 May and will be chaired by Will Palin, Chief Executive Officer of Barts Heritage Trust, and feature panellists Ellen Halstead, Peabody’s Director of Strategy & Programme for Thamesmead; Thomas Ball, Director of Our Yard at Clitterhouse Farm; Julian Robinson, LSE Director of estates; Charlotte Levy, project coordinator at Community Brain and Amandeep Singh Kalra, Associate Architect at Be First.
