Join the RSA Islington Network Event this May where we'll be discussing how to ensure that Islington remains a vibrant and creative community.
Islington’s reputation as a vibrant, creative, and inclusive community is under threat from the inexorable rise in house prices, which has put increasing pressure on cultural, social, and community land use.
At this event, we'll be:
- discussing inspiring examples of how new developments can deliver a full range of creative and community uses, health and care services, and genuinely affordable housing; and
- focusing on how to make the best use of an important local site: Holloway Prison. Find out more about the Holloway Prison project here.
Come and join us to find out how we can all help influence the nature of our communities by taking an active interest in our local built environment.
Leading the discussion will be Ken Dytor, Founder of Urban Catalyst, and Roger Grimshaw, Research Director of Centre for Crime and Justice Studies.
If you have any questions, please contact Network Lead Valerie Iles FRSA: firstname.lastname@example.org.
To let us know of any access requirements or reasonable adjustments you have, please email the RSA team: email@example.com.
Location: Cullinan Studio, Baldwin Terrace, London N1 7RU
About this network...
Did you know there are about 1000 Fellows living or working in an Islington postcode? Many are brimming with energy, expertise, and ideas, so Islington Network evenings are an opportunity to connect with a wide range of opportunities and skills, and also a chance to think about how Islington can be a better place for the fact that it hosts so many Fellows.
The network meets 4-5 times a year, sometimes with a discussion topic, sometimes focusing on bringing people together. There is an underlying theme of ‘The Islington I see’ in that we encourage people to describe what Islington looks like through their special interest lens, highlighting aspects of interest, concern or opportunity. Members also offer guided walks around parts of Islington they know best.
