Bringing together hopeful Londoners with hopeful mayors

Come along and have a say in the future of our city

London is one of the greatest cities in the world, and one of the most divided. Spend an afternoon in conversation with ordinary Londoners and politicians, join in workshops on power, living, moving and working to collectively imagine what our city could be.

You’ll get a chance to ask the hopeful candidates some questions and let them know what you would like to see happen in our city. 

why come along? 

Come meet Londoners, civil society groups, activists, campaigners, artists, poets and mayoral candidates and spend an afternoon creating visions for what our great city could be.
