RSA Watch Oxford – The Built Environment and the Future (10 July 2017)

Every quarter, I host an evening of screenings of recent talks given to the Royal Society for the Arts (RSA). The evening consists of a series of screenings and discussion around the themes, supported by free wine and nibbles! We call this ‘social watching’.

Known as “RSA Watch Oxford”, the next of these is on Monday 10th July 2017 from 18:30 to 21:00 at City of Oxford College, Oxford and is on the theme of The Built Environment and the Future.  You don’t need to be a Fellow to attend, just someone interested in the theme and in open conversation around it.

The built environment, and how to deal with the constant demand for more and better housing especially, has been an important theme of the work of the RSA since its institution, and one that many speakers have explored over recent years. At this event, we’ll be watching talks given by an extraordinary ‘virtual panel’, who each have an inspiring and very different perspective on this increasingly serious issue:

  • Paul Morrell (2016)
  • Peter Wynne Rees (2014)
  • Alastair Parvin (2014)
  • Robert Graef (2013)
  • Nabeel Hamdi (2013)
  • Grainia Long (2013)
  • Lyndsey Hanley (2013)

At previous RSA Watch Oxford events, Fellows were keen to consider ways in which we could engage with the theme. Join us to discuss what action we can take to address the housing crisis in Oxford and elsewhere, and how we might be able to make a significant impact in this area.

Drinks and light refreshments will be available. Come along for an evening of inspiring talks, informed discussion, and convivial company.

The event is free to attend, but please do book your place so we know that you’re coming: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/32463737914?ref=ebtn

I hope to see you there.

Best wishes
