We Can Make: The Knowle West Rule Book

6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Pop-Up Exhibition // Inspiring Talks // Drinks

Too often regeneration means demolishing existing communities and replacing them with tall towers and bland boxes. But what if citizens set the rules?

This event:

Celebrates Knowle West’s DIY spirit that has shaped the red brick estate over 80+ years

Hears from pioneering communities across the UK who are reclaiming densification and making it work on their terms

Features Knowle West’s own We Can Make project and Nicholas Boys Smith from London’s Create Streets

Shares the community’s ideas for setting the design rules for using micro-plots to meet housing need

Come and help make the rules for a new supply of citizen-led housing and a new kind of opt-in densification that works for people and places.

This event is part of We Can Make, a new citizen-led housing programme designed to enable communities to create affordable housing at the point of need. We Can Make is supported by the Nationwide Foundation and Power to Change.
