Journey to Justice: Southwark and Lambeth
January 11, 2017 @ 12:00 am - January 26, 2017 @ 12:00 am
Join us for a panel discussion on grassroots activism with Tom Keene, from Save Cressingham Gardens; Kiv Legate from Ritzy Living Wage and local activist, Devon Thomas from Lambeth Business Advisory and who helped found the first Black Youth Club in the 1950s.
This event will explore the impact of these campaigns and the ways in which they have gained public support and it will include a reading from Cressingham Gardens writer in residence Anne Cooper.
Cressingham Gardens is a much loved council estate situated on the edge of Brockwell Park in Lambeth. Regeneration plans by the local council mean that Cressingham Gardens is under threat from demolition. The campaign Save Cressingham Gardens is fighting for renovation, not demolition.
Ritzy Cinema is one of the most successful art house cinemas in Britain. But their employees are paid less than the living wage. Their campaign for a Ritzy Living Wage has been long-lasting and courageous.
The talk runs alongside the touring exhibition Journey to Justice at Morley Gallery, which aims to inspire and empower people to take action for social justice.
