Experiments in Citizen-led Housing

10:50 am - 11:50 am

How do we create more homes that are shaped by the needs of citizens and communities rather than developers’ profits?

This session brings together innovators from across the UK who are experimenting with new ways for the citizen sector to play a bigger role in making the homes we want and need.

The event includes the launch of a new report about We Can Make – a new model for creating affordable citizen-led housing developed by Knowle West Media Centre and White Design, working with Knowle West as a participatory test space.
