ONLINE EVENT: 1700 (UK) 29th November 2023

The Spaces of HOPE project*  - bringing together stories of the creative ways people have developed, owned and occupied sites, opposed and challenged developments, drawn up their own land-use plans, and established community projects  – is coming to an end. 

In this event we will provide an overview of the project and hear from some of the remarkable community led initiatives from across the UK that have been included in it. There will also be time for discussion and questions and reflection on the implications of this history for the present day.
