This exhibition documents the 'three - year battle', in which a group of diverse elders joined forces with community activists and architectural mavericks, in an attempt to prevent demolition and restore their "Modernist Gem", of a Sheltered Housing Scheme - changing architectural history.

This exhibition also acknowledges the wave of Public Housing Campaigns heralded, in the wake of Leigham Court’s Campaign. Insight will be gained into how these more recent Housing Campaigns have led the way in ‘next level’ Activism and Contemporary Citizenship.

Modern-day community fables, being told, through photography, ephemera and multimedia. These are stories of euphoria and the dark heart of human kind, relayed with creativity, humour, and the starkest of realism.
