Entangled Territories | Event wrap up

Go here for more info on the event, which saw about 70 activists, academics, and city dwellers discuss three key questions around how we are entangled in, and how we can find new possibilities for and beyond, the enclosures of urban territories:
+ How is capital capturing urban territories? Which spaces are currently under threat of enclosure?
+ What possibilities exist for the state to protect existing public spaces or initiate new ones, when its role has increasingly become the policing of space?
+ What capacities do we have for escaping existing enclosures, in the name of constructing new urban commons?
