LI director of policy and communications Paul Lincoln will be among the speakers at a conference on Saturday 17 May examining the history of public green spaces in London.
Organised by the History of Gardens and Landscapes Seminar at the University of London’s Institute of Historical Research, ‘Keep Off The Grass’ will explore ‘the complex and contradictory traditions that inform access to Britain’s gardens, parks and landscapes, whether public or private’.
A Chelsea Fringe event, the conference will take place at Senate House, Malet Street. Other speakers include Pam Smith, gardens advisor for the National Trust, garden historian David Marsh, and landscape consultant Mike Rowan.
An examination of the use and management of green space in present-day Berlin will provide a basis for comparison.
