Anna Minton: After Ground Control

Tuesday 4 November 2014, 6.30–8.30pm

Free, no booking required


Anna Minton will be discussing her book Ground Control: Fear and happiness in the 21st century city, which investigates the growing privatisation and control of cities. She is currently working on a follow-up to the book and the evening will be an opportunity for her to share new ideas about alternatives to the moribund status quo.

This presentation accompanies her essay, 'Common Good(s) – Redefining the public interest and the common good' which was commissioned and published last year on the How to work together Think Tank.

This is a How to work together Think tank event.

Anna Minton is a writer and journalist and Visiting Professor at the University of East London. She is currently the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 Fellow in the Built Environment.
