New Cross Commoners host an evening of open readings and discussions on the possibilities of commoning in New Cross at Goldsmiths' historic Deptford Town Hall. Bread and spreads will be prepared and eaten by community groups, historians, academics and local people to explore the politics of access, place and eating together. Participants will prepare food at The Field before moving to Deptford Town Hall to eat, read, exchange ideas and forge relationships. Discussions will focus on forms of ‘commoning’ and ‘enclosures’ in New Cross. The event will help generate discussions about the history and politics of New Cross, Goldsmiths and Deptford Town Hall.
