Chaired by Prof. Lindsay Bremner, University of Westminster

The University of Westminster and the British Council invite discussion about the impact of design (urban, architectural, industrial, fashion & graphic) on life in cities in Namibia and South Africa since democracy. Questions asked will include those of overcoming colonial spatial legacies, of the re-colonisation of cities by global economic forces, of the simultaneity of different experiences of space and time, and of the impact of mega events on host cities.
