Let our Legacy Continue

Tuesday, August 11th, 2020

A collaboration between the Caribbean Social Forum, and the University of Greenwich’s Applied Sociology and Drama Theatre and Performance Research Groups.

From the Caribbean to the UK to lockdown, we carry and re-remember stories of where we came from, journeys and first impressions. We do what we have always done to survive and thrive. We adapt and refresh skills. We innovate, create and re-create. This project uses visual art, sound, music and words to capture and celebrate the rich material of our unique Caribbeaness as reflected in our everyday lives.

Our journey ends with an exhibition which we invite you to travel through, marking the beginning of a new adventure. This exhibition appears both in a digital format* and at The Stephen Lawrence Gallery. Both formats of the exhibition are open to the public from 2 October, after an invited launch on 1 October.

*The URL for the online exhibition will be made available on the University of Greenwich Galleries website from 2 October.

Your Visit 

Due to COVID 19, we are operating a policy of limiting visitor numbers to a maximum of 9 per hour. It is therefore advisable for you to book in advance for your visit. Each slot is 45 minutes starting on the hour and can be booked via the Eventbrite link below. If you arrive without a booking we will only be able to grant you entry if there is a free slot. In this case, you will also be required to leave contact details for tracing purposes. When visiting the exhibition, you will encounter a layered experience of video, audio and imagery. The experience is expected to take no more than 45 minutes to travel through.

You are requested to wear a mask for your visit (unless you have a waiver), make use of the hand sanitiser provided, and to observe social distancing measures while you are in the gallery. For those shielding or otherwise unable to attend on-site, an online digital version will be available which you can enjoy from the comfort of your home. 

Further info

The gallery is fully wheelchair accessible. Public toilet facilities are available, including RADAR key operated disabled toilet facilities, on application to the gallery assistant. 

Further access information can be found under the Find Us tab on this website. For any additional access requirements or enquiries, please contact the gallery at ugg@gre.ac.uk

We are reopening: Window First

Tuesday, July 14th, 2020

Reopening in September Banner Poster

From Tuesday, September 1st, The Stephen Lawrence Gallery will re-open with the first of four week-long displays in the Gallery window space. On this and each subsequent Tuesday, a new installation will focus on a different aspect of teaching and research from the University’s School of Design.

The series starts with a presentation of the 2020 online graduate student exhibition, then moves on to explore the experimental roof-gardens in the Stockwell Street building. In the third week, we show some of the historically important research revealed through laser scanning projects from across the Greenwich World Heritage site, while the series rounds off with an audio-visual ‘taster’ of the forthcoming Sound/Image Festival to be held in Greenwich Town Centre in November.

To comply with our operational COVID 19 measures, these displays have been devised so that they can be engaged with from the street. Meanwhile, The Project Space and Heritage Gallery remain temporarily closed. We are working closely with the University Estates team towards their reopening, and will post developments on our social media platforms as these emerge. Follow University of Greenwich Galleries on TwitterInstagram or Facebook.
