South Bank Stories
South Bank Stories will feature 10 local Southwark
people reflecting on their working lives in the area and how it has changed
with the evolution of the South Bank over the last 30 years. The exhibition
will feature 6 portraits and interviews.
South Bank Stories worked with the children of Charles Dickens Primary School to teach them how to take photos of the changing Southwark landscape as well as making a map of the area.
We're delighted that this exhibition will be showcased during the Unicorn's 10 Years On Tooley Street celebrations during the August Bank Holiday weekend.
