Journeys – Special Screening

You are invited to a special screening of the new documentary film


Stories of migration to South west London – 1948-1971

Thursday 6th September 2018 6.30pm

The Migration Museum at The Workshop
26 Lambeth High Street, London SE1 7AG

Please join us for a special screening of a new oral history documentary film made by young people from CARAS (Community Action for Refugees and Asylum Seekers) and children from Furzedown Primary School with arts and education charity digital:works.

In 1948 the British Nationality Act was passed inviting people from the Commonwealth to come to live and work in the UK. In this film some of the people who made this journey tell their stories of leaving home to seek a new life in this corner of SW London. These are stories of excitement, hope and pain, the challenges of their journeys, setting up home, finding work, and going to school in the years up until 1971.

The screening will be followed by a discussion on the themes brought out by the film.

Refreshments provided with donation to the museum.

RSVP: Matthew Rosenberg

Project funded by Heritage Lottery Fund
