Coldharbour 360˚ : VR Exhibition Launch Event

Film, Media & Entertainment

Join us for the launch of the Coldharbour Project: a 360˚ VR film and oral history exhibition that explores the concept of belonging in Brixton.

The immersive film and exhibition take viewers on an alternative tour of Brixton, meeting people along the way who have shaped Brixton's strong and symbolic cultural fabric over several decades.

At the launch event, we will celebrate the completion of this ambitious project and discuss the participatory approach we took to developing it. The Coldharbour project started with six months of free workshops in research, 360˚ storytelling, recording oral histories and exhibition curation held at the Brixton Library, the Advocacy Academy Campus, the Brixton Pound Cafe, and the Lambeth Archives. From these workshops, over twenty local participants signed up to join the community production team that is producing the final film throughout August. 

The Coldharbour project takes viewers on a journey through Brixton Market to the Express Cafe in Market Row, Universal Roots Records, Windrush Square, Coldharbour Lane, Railton Road (the Frontline), and the Sports and Social Club. Along the way, we meet Alex Wheatle, S I Martin, Felix Buxton (Basement Jaxx), Ricky Ranking, George Lightfoot (Nasty Rockers), Paul Reid, Linda Bellos, Michael Groce, the Legs Eleven Sound System and the Brixton Immortals Dominoes Team, as well as market traders and customers.
