We Are Here

In our second quarter we ask what does it mean to belong in a place? To lay claim to a road, or a country? By exploring both the work happening to decolonise British institutions, education systems and public spaces, we come together to celebrate the diaspora, the interwoven cultural communities we live in. In Lambeth over 140 different languages are spoken, and yet habitual flaws in our language ask “Where are you from, really?” Here, we amplify the stories of many mother tongues, and the new dialects they are yet to create.

We all want to make it.
Make it in our chosen career. Maybe make it big.

Sometimes perhaps just make it to pay day.
But whatever our ambition, what unites us all is the desire to thrive, be recognised – and be supported.
And that’s what Lambeth’s Creative Enterprise Zone is all about. Supporting creative people to do amazing creative things without having to leave our amazingly creative corner of south London.
Because we all want to make it – of course – but more than that, we want to Make It in Brixton.
