In December 2020, Museum as Muck and the team working on the Mayor's Commission for Diversity in the Public Realm facilitated an open online discussion on working class representation in London's public spaces.
The purpose of the Commission for Diversity in the Public Realm is to lead a London-wide conversation on how to practically achieve greater diversity of representation across the public realm and heritage sites. This will have a focus on increasing presence and visibility of underrepresented groups including LGBTQ+, Black, Asian and minority ethnic, women and disabled groups and will include consideration of representation of socio-economic diversity.
Discussions from this event fed directly into recommendations for the Board of the Commission in January 2021. This forms part of a series of community events and there will be further opportunities to engage with the work of the Commission throughout the two-year length of the project.
