London is growing – housing, commercial, transport and hospitality development are all competing for increasingly scarce space. Will there still be room for culture? For artist studios, creative workspaces, galleries, performance spaces and public art?

Can culture play a part in enriching London’s changing places or is it itself a driver of gentrification and displacement? This panel debate will bring together leading experts to discuss these challenges and explore potential solutions for London. 

This panel debate is powered by New London Architecture as part of the annual London Transport Museum ‘Late Debate’, which features a series of simultaneous inspiring events, debates and immersive content about transport, city living and the future of London.
