Voices from the Village launched at the Hackney WickED Festival on Saturday 2nd August, and will now be constantly available.
The performance is about more than experiencing the Olympic Legacy for two hours; I want to use this website to create an online community so we can start to discuss what the Village means for the future of our cityscapes. The Voices from the Village website is just the beginning of an ongoing process examining the effects of regeneration on public spaces and on our imaginaries of the future.
Let’s begin. Leave your responses below and let’s get a discussion going!
1. What do you think the aims of the Olympic Legacy are?
2. Can you see yourself fitting into this ‘ideal’ model of living?
3. Do shopping centres like Westfield have a positive impact in the communities they are erected in?
4. Should Hackney Wick be regenerated?
