One thought on “11th October at Stephen Lawrence Gallery Archive

  1. Fantastically rich event curated by Anne Robinson. I learnt more about the Greenwich Peninsula, the Thames foreshore, the Navy, exploration/development/exploitation, cables and communication than can be described or imagined. So many connections and threads thrown up by Time at Enderby Wharf – traveling through time and through layers of time/memory. I was struck by the anachronistic and the different speeds of change/time that we are being subjected to and thinking about how we can or do respond to these confluences and sensations. Thank you once again to Anne for getting together rich and diverse group of people to open up the discussion. Hope more people can make it down to the final event on the 26th October which will continue in this rich, generous vein. Sailor Forbes thoroughly enjoyed his touring and has been gently humming:
    “Ah, for just one time I would take the North West passage
    To find the hand of Franklin reaching for the Beaufort sea
    Tracing one warm line through the land so wide and savage
    And make a north west passage to the sea.” (anon. Mariner’s song)
