Slade Reseach Centre (link Map)
Woburn Square | London | WC1H 0AB | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: FREE
Ticketing: Open

Join UCL Urban Laboratory for a screening of the film Concrete Heart Land followed by a Q&A session with the directors, Steven Ball and Rastko Novakovic.

Concrete Heart Land exposes the social cleansing of the Heygate Estate in South London, marking the moment that the estate was finally lost as social housing to make way for a 'regeneration' scheme. The film charts the struggles of the local community in the face of the advance of this now notorious 'urban redevelopment programme'. Having evicted the last residents in November 2013, Southwark Council and the developer Lend Lease are currently working towards the wider gentrification of the area.
