Dictating to the Estate, a documentary play

The Urban Salon is delighted to be hosting a face to face eventa documentary play Dictating to the Estate by Nathaniel McBride, directed by Lisa Goldman and Natasha Langridge, followed by a panel discussion with Pete Apps, Inside Housing; Loretta Lees, co-organiser of the Urban Salon and outgoing Chair of the London Housing Panel; and Liam Ross, Edinburgh School of Art.

'Dictating to the Estate is a documentary play about events leading up to the Grenfell Tower fire. Using emails, blogs and council minutes, it tells the story of the refurbishment of the tower and the residents' attempts to hold the council to account. At the same time, it places these events in a wider context of austerity, deregulation and estate regeneration.'

Tickets for the event are available at: https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/whats-on/2a-maxilla-walk/maxilla-social-club/dictating-to-the-estate/e-rxzyjz

The tickets are £15 each, £7.50 concessions.

This event will also be a chance to say goodbye to Loretta who moves to Boston University in the US in late June, but will remain a co-organiser of the Urban Salon.
