Event description

Description

Access to this event is included in the MFest Festival Pass and the Saturday Pass.

Last year the Grenfell Tower fire highlighted the failure of our political discussions to include and provide adequate housing for those quickly being left behind. Into the gap has stepped social activists doing much more than raising awareness but channeling funds, organising and campaigning. Their response to Grenfell has shaped our engagement with politicians and the press. This session explores the consequences of Grenfell on activist movements with community organiser Pilgrim Tucker, local MP Emma Dent Coad and grime artist Saskilla.
