On Monday 24th February, Sixth Form Creative Industries students journeyed across to Lambeth Town Hall for Linett Kamala’s ‘My heart will always be in Brixton’ exhibition, which was in response to and in celebration of activist Olive Morris. Ms Morris fought on social justice issues including housing and education. She was an inspirational community activist who died prematurely in 1979 at the age of 27, and played a significant role in the Railton Road community.
Students thoroughly enjoyed their talk and Q&A with Linett Kamala and asked questions about her insipirational work.
Students also met young people from the October Gallery Youth Collective and their Education Manager Georgie Fay, which led to discussions about Mulberry UTC’s young creatives becoming members themselves!
It was quite wonderful and we look forward to developing our relationship with the organisation in the future.
