Manifestos: Architecture for a New Generation is an annual collaboration between London Festival of Architecture and the Design Museum.

"They are vital voices for London" Afterparti's events include For the Love of Power, a discussion on how to define, unpack and challenge notions of power that was part of The Architecture Foundation's Architecture on Stage series, and the Rip It Up, Again event with We Made That and Eyesore.

For the London Festival of Architecture's series Manifestos: Architecture for a New Generation, which Dezeen is broadcasting a selection of as part of Virtual Design Festival, Adey and fellow Afterparti member Aquilina explained the work Afterparti is doing to realise the inclusive, transdisciplinary future it envisions for architecture.

Afterparti, which was born out of the New Architecture Writers (NAW) programme for emerging BAME writers, creates zines –non-commercial magazines – and events that promote underrepresented voices in architecture and design.

Siufan Adey and Thomas Aquilina of Afterparti present the architecture collective's manifesto in the second part of Virtual Design Festival's collaboration with the London Festival of Architecture.
