In this podcast, Dr Eleanor Jupp talks to two community activists, Christine and Karen, who live on the outskirts of Stoke-on-Trent. Both women have run community groups for over ten years in their neighbourhoods, aimed at improving the lives and life chances of residents in these disadvantaged areas.
Doreen Massey discusses how the Soundings project originated, the philosophical thinking and socio-political struggles that marked the last decades, and the geographical perspective that she brings to the debates.
OpenSpace has recently launched a newsletter with information about the Centre, forthcoming events, latest publications and research funding successes.
