SE1 exhibition shows the fightback by the communities of North Southwark and Waterloo in the 1970s and 1980s. The exhibition portrays how for many it was a fight for survival as businesses moved out and the land was earmarked for office development leaving isolated communities struggling to maintain their way of life. Community workers and volunteers worked alongside community leaders and local residents for better housing and social conditions. Campaigns, protests and direct action were the tools to make local authorities and developers recognise the communities’ needs.

You can go and see the fantastic exhibition in person between the 5th – 16th January 2022 at [email protected], Oxo Tower Wharf, South Bank. The exhibition can now also be accessed online by clicking here
