London, Rio, Tokyo Olympics Symposium   JPsupported

JF London are delighted to support this three day symposium at Goldsmiths, University of London, which will explore the changes accompanying the 2012 London Olympics, the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics and the preparations for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

The meeting will focus on existing research and interventions concerning the ways that global events have been accompanied by urban transformations and new forms of social (dis)advantage and exclusions, in different urban/nation-state contexts. What does the future hold for existing Olympic Cities? Are there ways of holding mega events which bring genuine benefits to cities and their citizens? How might the promises of ‘legacy’ be realised in more open and democratic ways?

London, Rio, Tokyo Olympics is a three-day event including documentary film screenings, a photography exhibition, academic presentations, a London Olympic site walking tour, workshops and networking sessions. 


Date: 8 June 2017 - 10 June 2017
