Rural Urban Synthesis Society Evening Talks: Global Self-build Projects
On Wednesday 20 February Ted Stevens will deliver a slide presentation looking at a number of innovative group self-build projects that have been built around the world. Ted was the founding chair of the National Custom and Self Build Association (NaCSBA) and he spent two years touring Europe visiting community-led housing projects. His presentation will include examples from France, Austria, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Uruguay and the USA. He will also showcase several recent UK schemes. Ted is now a Trustee of RUSS.
Date: Wednesday 20 February
Time: 7 – 8.30pm
Venue: Café of Good Hope at PLACE/Ladywell (261 Lewisham High Street, SE13 6NJ). The closest station is Ladywell.
The talks are open to anyone. They are free to RUSS members; a small donation towards the cost of the room hire would be appreciated from non-members that can afford it.
RUSS Co-Chair Kwame Lowe-Benjamin said he was especially keen to attract local people to the talks and to get their thoughts on how the organisation might develop in the future. “We want to hear about the issues and ideas that are important to local people so that we can make RUSS a truly community-led movement, as we seek to build sustainable neighbourhoods and genuinely affordable homes in Lewisham and beyond,” he said.
