Event description

Description

What is this all about then?

Gentrification is described as "the process of renovating and improving a house or district so that it conforms to middle-class taste."

Closer to home, Liverpool has its own stories, opinions and opportunities that should be talked about. Join us to discuss gentrification in 2017.

The evening will start with short talks from a panel of speakers before being opened up to a chaired debate involving the audience. Think Question Time, except we'll all have a drink in our hands and no one is allowed to talk about Brexit!

Who are the panel of speakers?

The rest of the panel will be revealed over the coming weeks.

Three part series!

Folken started in summer 2016, offering a grassroots, street-level view of the some of the subjects that consume us when we talk about the city we live in. We’ve talked about access to money, meanwhile spaces and creative places; writing, starting a magazine and building a football club.

Make Liverpool is the temporary custodian of Folken for this three-part special edition. We've chosen three cracking topics to cover in this series, starting with 'Gender Equity’, moving on to 'How the arts are funded' and finishing with ‘Gentrification'. Join us!
