I paid a flying visit to the Museum of London earlier today, anxious to see The City Is Ours exhibition before it closes on 2 January as part of the City Now City Future season (which continues until April). I didn’t have time to try out many of the interactive bits, but the accompanying films and displays had me scribbling ideas and reflections in my notebook all the way home. Here’s a short introduction.
The exhibition area also features big screen pieces to camera about challenges London faces from contributors including Jo Wilson, head of policy at Future of London, on the capital’s growing population and its implications for the city’s development.
There’s also this from Adam Kaasa, director of Theatrum Mundi, on London’s proliferating diversity, with special reference to Rye Lane in Peckham.
The Museum of London offers a wealth of insights into both London’s past and its future. Find out more about what’s on there via here.
