• A Manifesto for Darkness by Rut Blees Luxemburg

Blees Luxemburg, Rut, 2018, Conference or Workshop, A Manifesto for Darkness by Rut Blees Luxemburg at Ten ideas for the London Public Space Charter in the Night Time, London, 23-24 January 2018.

Abstract or Description:

In response to Sadiq Khan’s pledge to establish a Public Space Charter, this evening discussion at the Garden Museum asks what kind of public space London should cultivate by night.

The arrival of the night tube has reinvigorated debate over how the city’s urban realm should respond to darkness. The GLA says London wants a holistic night-time economy, yet public parks and pedestrian routes continue to close after dusk. The vibrant life of public spaces we enjoy by day is often deemed threatening and disruptive by night? Is civicness incompatible with darkness?
