Who Cares? The Cass explores Humanitarianism
For the second event in the Who Cares? 2018-19 series, join us on Monday 11 February 2019 at 6.30pm at The Cass for the lecture where we explore: A Global Human Crisis in conversation with Maggie Black and Paul Vick.
Paul’s experience has included projects addressing some of the most significant commercial, cultural and social challenges in Europe, including The British Museum Masterplan, The Whitecity Development and Portcullis House. As well as a Zero Carbon Strategy for 8000 new homes in London and a variety of projects in UK, USA, Hong Kong and PR China, he has published many books and been the recipient of multiple awards. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Art and a contributor to the 10x10 Drawing The City of London project run by Article 25.
Maggie Black is a writer and editor whose career has focused on international social issues, particularly women’s and children’s rights, and water and sanitation services in low-income communities. She began her career in Oxfam in the 1970s when the academic discourse on international development was in its infancy, and her views have been shaped by a journalistic insistence on seeing at first hand whatever she writes about. Her books include histories of Oxfam and UNICEF; this helped foster familiarity with a broad range of social fields, including public health, education, child protection, nutrition, and slum improvement. She has written several books, mainly under the imprints of Oxford University Press, the New Internationalist and Earthscan. For NI, of which she has also been an editor, key titles are International Development: Illusions and Realities and the No-Nonsense Guide to the United Nations.
