Glass-House Chats are monthly hour-long online spaces for conversation and connection, to ask questions and explore ideas, approaches and methods, share learning and meet others. They are free sessions for anyone interested, and are kept to around 10 participants to allow for open dialogue.

About this Session

Our world and places are characterised by a diversity of individuals and groups representing the global majority, different cultures, gender identities, abilities and LGBTQIA+ people. However not everyone feels they have the same right to shape the city, from policy to practice to placemaking. What are the mechanisms that we can create or advocate to ensure our spaces and places reflect the diversity of those around us?

Taking inspiration from Henri Lefvbre’s The Right to The City, this chat will explore what makes places special to different people and how the city can be shaped for the diversity of those around us.

About the Series

The sessions will be chaired by The Glass-House team, who will briefly introduce the theme and then open the floor for an informal and open discussion among participants.

To ensure space for meaningful discussion, places are limited to a small group. Key discussion points will be collated and shared after each session, with the Chatham House Rule applied when sharing any points from the event.
