Join us for a Film Session:


By Peg Rawes and Beth Lord

Equal By Design is a 25-minute documentary film about equality, wellbeing and the UK housing crisis. The film shows how seventeenth-century Dutch philosopher Baruch Spinoza’s theories of wellbeing and equality can be used to analyse housing and income inequalities, and how his ideas relate to post-war and current social housing design. It features contributors from the architectural profession, national charities, journalism and academia.The film will be followed by an open debate.
