The Mayor's London Borough of Culture 2022
We are shaking things up. We are making change.
In 2022, a year-long cultural programme, We Are Lewisham, celebrated our history, people and place, with over 350 events in our venues, parks and street corners.
Led by Lewisham Council and the Albany and created by the people of the borough, the programme was inspired by Lewisham’s proud history of activism and of standing up for equality. Together, we celebrated the borough’s diverse communities and our trailblazers past and present, highlighting the power of culture to create change.
It’s not over yet! We Are Lewisham will have a lasting legacy. Follow us @WeAreLewisham for updates,
