Panellists will discuss the social infrastructures along the high street that enable global and local networks, how transport infrastructures are shaped by cultural conventions, and the infrastructures required for ensuring a thriving cultural life in the city.
Panel chair: Professor Henrietta L. Moore, Director of the Institute for Global Prosperity at UCL & Chair in Culture, Philosophy and Design
- Suzanne Hall - Associate Professor in Sociology, Director of the Cities Programme, London School of Economics, (LSE)
