Judith Ryser, Michael Edwards, Bob Colenutt: ‘Urban Renaissance’: For Whom? Reflections on failure and the attempts to rewrite resistance 

This discussion offers insight into the community campaigns in the Docklands, Kings Cross and the Olympic site. Looking at the idea of failure - of community planning and resistance movements – the session asks 'what are the lessons learned' and 'how do we plan for the next stages'? How has it come to be that the work and history of the community movements that fought to resist the developments have almost been rewritten? What lessons can be learnt in time for the proposed 2012 Olympic Games legacy? 22 October 2010 / 14:00-15:30
