A Tale of Two Southwarks has moved to 55 East Street, Southwark, SE17 2DJ
Join us at 55 East Studio & Café for an evening of art, photography & talks that celebrate community, culture and people of Southwark.
Enjoy a welcome drink & refreshments reception and meet the 55 East team to learn about South London's new community & enterprise hub. Followed by insightful talks from artists Suchi Chidambaram & John Pheasant to explore Southwark's diversity, contrasts and challenges through their works and the inspiration and stories behind their exhibition, A Tale of Two Southwarks (at 55 East until end August).
'Southwark is a product both of its rich history and a modern makeover.’ In forging its future, exclusion and isolation are seen as dangers, whilst ‘those most likely to feel a high sense of satisfaction are those who feel they belong to their neighbourhood’.
Suchi, an oil painter, and John, a photographer, set out to capture the two Southwarks visually to encourage visitors to engage with its challenges and, hopefully, to be part of the solution offering support to the young entrepreneurs helped by Hatch Enterprise and promoted by 55 East.
