MULTISTORY* Guest Lecture
Authors of the Estate 28 Nov

The “Authors of the Estate” project is a story that fights against the ‘crime and poverty’ narrative written for us. The result of the project sees a social housing estate create a book and learn how to build a publishing house out of council houses; the value proposition is that it creates a system that promotes employability, education, and the value of local knowledge — a new, iconic, positive story centred around the social housing estate; producing a stronger sense of solidarity through storytelling and education. Books will be on sale after the lecture for £10.


MULTISTORY* is a student and alumni led guest lecture programme series at Canterbury School of Architecture, University for the Creative Arts, seeking to invite architects, designers, writers, curators, photographers and artists to speak about their work.

This year, under new curatorship, we have chosen the theme of Futures: Industry to fuel discussion on how the profession is adapting and innovating to cope with changes in climate,
society, and procurement. We aim to ask ‘what kind of diversifications are emerging, growing and changing the wider industry, and how can we participate?’

MULTISTORY* lectures run from 1800 – 1900 on Thursday evenings in the Architecture Foyer at UCA Canterbury, unless otherwise stated. Details for each event are posted here in advance. Follow us on twitter to keep up to date on additions to the programme.

MULTISTORY* is free and open to all.
