Booking is essential. Tickets: £5/Free* Order confirmation will arrive in your email inbox. Please print this and bring to event for entry.

Tide of Change in East London presents a unique opportunity to view and discuss major regeneration projects in and around the Docklands with those leading them. It is part of The Campaign for Drawing’s Recording Britain Now: John Ruskin Prize events programme, in collaboration with Urban Space Management at Trinity Buoy Wharf.

An open discussion will follow a series of presentations to consider how developers and landowners are responding to the challenges of East London - given the interests of the resident communities - or the lack of existing communities. The intention is to explore the future of this part of London and ask how to ensure a balance between desirable residential developments, affordable housing, working places, leisure and cultural provision.

Confirmed speakers are:

  • Paul Finch - chair
  • Eric Reynolds (TBW)
  • Phil Wade of First Base (Silvertown Quays)
  • Daniel Hill - Peabody (Thamesmead)  
  • Megan Piper (The Line)
  • Jason Syrett – Allies & Morrison (Wood Wharf and the Leamouth South).
  • Mike Davies – Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners (designer of the Millennium Dome)
  • Eric Sorensen  ex Chief Executive London Docklands Development Corporation (historic perspective)
  • Murray Woodburn, LB Newham (transport infrastructure)
