New Project: Lansbury Estate, Poplar with V&A Museum

We've recently been getting to know the Lansbury Estate, Poplar in East London.

Through the V&A Lansbury Micro Museum, we enjoyed a brilliant day learning a huge amount about the history, industry and current identity of the area and the people who live and work there. There was a fascinating walking tour by Rosamund Lily West, followed by a panel discussion which forms part of the exhibitions at the Micro Museum curated by Ruth Lang (CSM).

We're very excited to announce our collaboration on this project during April 2017. We'll be working with residents on the estate to create a brand new piece of site-sepcific audio-visual art, which will take a snapshot of current life and also look to the future. Keep an eye out here for updates, and make sure you pay a visit to the Micro Museum soon!
