This session addresses ‘the right to the city’ through exploring examples of self-organised, community centred and driven urban development projects in Tottenham, London. It approaches “community wealth building” from a new angle, discussing the radical potential of urban development from below. This session is for people interested in building power in their communities and workplaces, to learn from the specific examples of the Latin Village and others, and to put that learning to work at home after the festival.
