Stokes Croft Land Trust is delighted to welcome Loretta Lees to Bristol. Urban geographer and professor of Human Geography at Leicester University, Loretta has been studying social and cultural processes within cities for many years, particularly the phenomenon of gentrification, which she has researched and written about extensively. Based in London for 25 years, Loretta has supported a number of communities on the receiving end of gentrification ‘pressure, particularly the notorious Heygate Estate redevelopment in Southwark.

Loretta will be talking about the experience of 50 years of gentrification around the world, how it has been resisted, and the implication for us here in Stokes Croft.
