Creative Conscience is a charitable organisation that seeks to make the world a fairer, healthier and sustainable place. I chose to look at issues that were local to me, in particular the gentrification that is seemingly slowly engulfing London. After living in South London for a number of years one thing that I noticed was the displacement of cultural public spaces. They are becoming privately owned, converted into property and sold at extremely high prices. One of the many examples that this is happening to is the Aylesham Centre. Once a public space that was a hub of the community it has become a dilapidated shopping centre devoid of any ideas. It seems that London is constantly repeating this, capitalising on cultural identities while also removing the people that made those places what they were.
