  • What happens to communities when the way they work changes?
  • How does their past continue to shape their future?
  • What are the consequences of change economically, socially and politically?

In this talk Jon Warren will outline how he tried to make sense of these questions by looking at Industrial Teesside and asking about its Post-industrial future. His talk will reflect upon how in an increasingly post-industrial world, where many of the industries that built modern Britain have faded from view or disappeared altogether, the industrial past still matters and has the power to evoke powerful emotions.
