I am documenting the process of change happening at the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust Centre in Deptford, London. The Trust are launching an exciting new development that will transform the interior use of the original building into a thriving, creative, co-working ‘hub’ for start-ups in the built environment. More information about the project and the Trust can be found here.
I was asked to photograph a project breakfast meeting with Baroness Lawrence and the entire Pro Bono team working on this project. Despite the miserably dark, cold morning, there was a warm welcome and a tangible feeling of excitement about the work ahead.
‘Justice for Stephen is about all of us, every one of us, in society having justice. There are still too many young people who do not have a sense of hope, who just don’t get the chance to live their dreams. I want all our children and young people to feel inspired, to be confident and have hope in their own future. We are building hope but there is more to do.’ Baroness Doreen Lawrence
