Film of the Pop Up Museum

Here’s a short film of our event at the British Library at the Somers Town Festival.

You may catch some of Owen Hatherley’s excellent talk on social housing, the opening from Library Head Roly Keating with references to our ‘radical thinking’ themes, hear Leader of Camden Council Georgia Gould’s support for the museum as well as a thank you to co-founders Steve Denholm on retirement from organising the Festival for 21 years.

Pop Up Museum at Somers Town Festival


Preparing on Friday

With grateful thanks to all, but particularly Esther Leslie, Mordecai Watson, Donna Turnbull (VAC), Raj for structural guidance, Michael Royce and Nipo Gregoris for building, John Carroll, George Sharp, Celia, Steve Denholm, Owen Hatherley, Salima Abdallah and son, with youth from Real Life Events, without whom this really would not have happened.

And, of course, to  all contributors, bunting makers, writers and festival organisers, and the British Library’s Emma Morgan and Amber Perrier for enabling the event.
