We Are Lewisham

QWAG is part of We Are Lewisham mark Lewisham being London Borough of Culture in 2022

We are working with Goldsmith’s University of London and Lewisham Council on In Living Memory, a post WWII People’s History of the borough.

A major post war event was the Great Flood in 1968 and 2022 is the 54th anniversary.

Do you, your family and friends recall the flood and its aftermath?

Do you have pictures, diary entries or other writings you would like to share?

We’d also love to gather some audio recordings of people’s recollections. Would you be willing to be interviewed for an audio recording of your flood memories?

All recordings, pictures and writings will form part of a People’s History archive curated by Goldsmiths’.

To share any memories and information on how anything you kindly offer to the project will be used please see Lewisham Under Water.
