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, and hear Leader of Camden Council Georgia Gould’s support for the museum and a thank you to founder Steve Denholm on retirement from Organising the Festival for 21 years.

With grateful thanks to all, but particularly Jaimie Denholm, Esther Leslie, Mordecai, Donna Turnbull of VAC, Raj for structural guidance, Michael and Nipo for building, John Carroll, George Sharp, Celia, Steve Denholm, Owen Hatherley, Salima Abdallah and son, 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.
