As part of the 40th anniversary events, Goldsmiths organised two artist-led community mural workshops to help develop a permanent public artwork to be situated on Batavia Road, just off Clifton Rise in New Cross. 

People of all ages and abilities created forty artworks which will inform a number of initial designs for further public consultation in early 2018. Funded by Lewisham Council and in partnership with Goldsmiths, the artwork will be unveiled for the 41st anniversary of the Battle of Lewisham in August 2018.
