DIY Hack it workshops
Learn how to change the city for yourself in in a series of workshops ranging from urban foraging to building your own bee hotel.
Like many cities are the world, London is growing in both size and population. City planners have to balance the needs for housing, transportation and infrastructure, while aiming to keep population density to manageable levels. Individuals and communities are also challenging the status quo, creating new shared housing or work spaces, and greener streets. From governments and policy-makers to community groups and individual residents, we are all part of making our city.
We've commissioned artists Blast Theory to create My Point Forward, an interactive installation exploring how London will change in the future and inspiring visitors to be a part of recreating the city.
Step into a corner of London and look around. Gaze at the towers in the distance. Pick out the path trodden through the park or the eddy in the river. And then jump decades into the future to imagine a new London and your place within it.
Featuring a series of short films, My Point Forward gathers recordings from visitors to build a personal and meditative portrait of the future.
