Room to Breathe is an immersive exhibition inviting you to discover stories from generations of new arrivals to Britain. Journey through a series of rooms in which hundreds of personal stories are brought to life in creative and unexpected ways through film, animation, audio, photographs and personal objects.
Explore rooms to sleep, eat, learn and meet. Make these rooms your own. Rummage through drawers, take a seat at the kitchen table, settle into a barber’s chair, go back to school. Contribute your story and make connections to the past and present.
Room to Breathe was originally staged at our previous venue in Lambeth in 2018/19. We are delighted to be updating and restaging the exhibition at our new venue in the heart of Lewisham Shopping Centre.
