Lewisham is the Mayor's London Borough of Culture 2022
Get ready for a whole borough celebration! We are ready to shake things up. We are ready for change. From venues to parks and street corners, we will tell the story of Lewisham’s trailblazers past and present via music, dance, debate, public art and more.
With a call to action on the climate emergency and a celebration of Lewisham’s diverse communities, the year-long programme is inspired by our borough’s rich history of activism and standing up for equality. Jointly led by Lewisham Council and the Albany, We Are Lewisham will bring together all of our neighbourhoods, communities and stories.
Our programme is created by and with the people of Lewisham. Find out what’s on and how you can get involved.
About London Borough of Culture
Introduced by the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan in 2017, the London Borough of Culture award is a competition that sees London’s 32 boroughs bid for more than £1m of funding to stage a programme of cultural events and initiatives.
The award brings Londoners together, putting culture at the heart of local communities and shining a light on the character and diversity of London’s boroughs.
