Event description
Produced by a team of young researchers from South London, the launch event showcases their findings on urban regeneration and mental health

About this Event

‘Growing Up During Neighbourhood Change’ tells the story of urban regeneration and gentrification and its impacts on the mental health and wellbeing of young people living in South London.

Produced by a team of young researchers from Southwark and Lambeth, the exhibition draws attention to their experiences and ideas about how changing neighbourhoods influence young people’s lives.

Showcasing photography and zines, we also invite you to explore and critically interrogate who urban regeneration policy is designed for.

At this launch event, you will have the opportunity to meet and hear from the team about their work, process and findings.

Co-created and curated by:

Hannah Adeniji is a 16-year-old girl who lives in Lambeth and is interested in how her community is changing and how this affects people.

Shamso Ali is a very curious 17-year-old girl who has a great interest in studying neuroscience. She is obsessed about the neurochemistry of the brain and wants to make her own documentaries surrounding the unseen truth about mental health.

Olamide Bamigboye is a 17-year-old girl from South London who is passionate about turning stories into power.

Francess Conteh is a 17-year-old girl and has lived in South West London her whole life. Although she’s moved around a lot, one thing that is prominent in all the areas she’s lived in is the variety of cultures and heritages; she wouldn’t change it for the world! She has a keen interest in music and the environment around her and would like to portray this through her work.

Elizabeth Kuyoro is a 16-year-old girl from South East London, she’s has an interest in her community, the diversity, and the changes within it. She hopes for there to be a change very soon.

Shahani Richards is a young, God-fearing female who is always ready to take on a challenge. She is always willing to explore and try new things and accepts that taking risks doesn’t always guarantee a happy ending.

Amina Sesay is a 17-year-old from South London. She’s lived in the city since she was eight weeks old and just can’t see herself leaving! Her interests include the study of black history, black archives, Anime, travelling, cooking and fashion.

Laila Yasir is a 16 year old girl, lives in Lambeth and is fascinated by her communities growth and how it has altered the behaviour of the people from her area.

Hana Riazuddin, a research student from the Department of Geography at King's College London and director of The Body Narratives. Her research reflects on questions of young people’s mental health and wellbeing within the wider debate on urban and social transformation.
