The Lore of Blackfriars is a temporary art project developed by artist collective Public Works in collaboration with local residents, taking place in Blackfriars during the autumn of 2019. Throughout October and November, local groups and residents are invited to participate in workshops and community events that will showcase the wealth of knowledge that exists, yet is rarely recorded, in our neighbourhoods. The word ‘Lore’ refers to the traditional and anecdotal knowledge held by locals. It also refers to a way of learning and sharing of this local know-how. Through a series of workshops and community events, we will uncover this wealth of knowledge under the name: Lore of Blackfriars. Residents can take part in a Complaints Choir, listening workshops, pop-up presentations by residents on a repurposed milk float, a tea
trolley dance, a High Tea imagined and produced with local cooks, and much more. Then, join us for two public celebratory events that will bring to life the Lore of Blackfriars on 30th November at Boyfield
Street, and 6th December at the community garden on Peabody’s Blackfriars estate.
