We Are Lewisham – Our Year Impact Report

Lewisham was the Mayor’s London Borough of Culture 2022. The year-long cultural programme, We Are Lewisham, was a celebration of the borough’s history, people and place. Led by Lewisham Council and the Albany and created by the people of the borough, it was inspired by Lewisham’s history of activism and about highlighting the power of culture to create change.

This report is a snapshot of the year. It’s impossible to do justice to all that happened.
Instead, it tries to offer insights into the breadth and depth of the programme and its impact – the
ways it was meaningful, enjoyable, valuable and sometimes challenging. Like the programme, creating this has been a collaborative process. Shaped by evaluation partner Art of Regeneration, it draws together data and feedback from lots of people involved in different ways – as audience members, participants, creatives, partners and producers. Together, we want to consider what the year tells us about the value of arts and culture in Lewisham and how this is informing what
happens next.

"Just to say a huge thanks ... I am looking forward to progressing with this project thanks to your support, advice and guidance"
