Our intention is to open up a space for conversation, debate and story; to learn lessons from this building and its community, and create platforms to tell its multiple stories.

Unearthing Elephant is an ongoing project by Eva Sajovic, Sarah Butler and Rebecca Davies to create work in response to the demolition and reconstruction of Elephant and Castle’s Shopping Centre. The work is to culminate with a film of the shopping centre, an artefact of its life from 195 until its. Panel discussion ‘Opportunity Area’ was held in June 2016 as part of this ongoing project in an empty unit inside the Shopping Centre.
