A panel discussion with photographer Jermaine Francis, artist Harold Offeh and social housing campaigner Kwajo Tweneboa. We invite our audience to engage in meaningful dialogue around the complexities of the impact of gentrification and the lack of affordable housing in London.

Following the panel discussion there will be a screening of Ayo Akingbade’ film Jitterbug (2022, 24 min) at 4.30 pm. Set in Hackney at a time of rampant gentrification, Jitterbug offers a portrait of youthful hope and adult resignation, anger and resilience.
