Through bold collage and paint works, six young English language learners from Lewisham Southwark College explore and respond to the symbolism, drama and history of the Painted Hall.

These young people are making new lives in south-east London for many reasons and come from countries all over the world: the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, Eritrea, the Gambia and Peru.

Repositioning, reinterpreting, even repurposing elements from the ceiling’s paintings into new and often surprising arrangements, these young people have drawn upon their experience of leaving their home countries and finding themselves in London.

Entry is included with a Painted Hall Ceiling Tour ticket. Book here.
