Join a line-up of Goldsmiths academics at Lewisham People’s Day for a programme of interactive talks on subjects related to different aspects of Lewisham life.
Pull up a hay bale at Lewisham’s biggest community festival for talks on everything from Lewisham’s air quality to its history:
12:30pm — How can Lewisham residents monitor and improve local air quality? Sociologist Dr Jennifer Gabrys
1:30pm — What should a World Gallery contain? Anthropologist Dr Charlotte Joy (Horniman / Goldsmiths)
2:30pm — What makes Lewisham’s sound system culture so valuable? Prof Julian Henriques and Sound System Outernational crew
3:30pm — What’s the legacy of the women of the Windrush? Anthropologist Dr Audrey Allwood
4:30pm — Lewisham People's History and Everyday Heroes. Historian Dr John Price
Also at 1:30pm, young artists from the Goldsmiths Saturday Music Club will perform on the Unit 137 Sound System Stage - a collaboration between the Goldsmiths widening participation and Music departments and the Soundsystem Outernational Crew.
We will also be consulting festival goers on the design for a public mural commemorating the 1977 Battle of Lewisham, sharing the history of People’s Day venue Mountsfield Park, and showcasing Goldsmiths’ Open Book project.
Come along and say hello.
