LRU Mutual education – Housing Associations
August 5 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In the current landscape of renting in London, Housing Associations loom large. Now in many cases corporate behemoths with a track record of participation in gentrification and social cleansing, early visions of Housing Associations sought to define them as radical, community-run alternatives to bureaucratic and managerial Local Authorities.
In this session of the London Renters Union’s Mutual Education series, we’ll talk about how this radical vision was lost, and what there and what there is to learn from earlier struggles to make public housing accountable to its residents.
All welcome, snacks provided.
