Port of Steel and Sails: A Changing Landscape – About London’s Docklands

February 23 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

£10 – £12
Story About London Docklands

London’s Docklands area has always been a constantly changing and evolving landscape. Join us at the Museum of London Docklands to take a look at the change industrialisation has had on the area and how regeneration has impacted the landscape and the communities that were once so integral to the character of the Docklands.
Join our Chair, Curator of Painting, Prints and Drawings, Thomas Ardill and a host of speakers who will discuss the physical and socio-political changes of the landscape of the Docks.

Speakers:

Before moving to Oxford, she worked with community organisations in London’s Docklands.
