Who are ya? an event in Tate Exchange at Tate Modern in London

We are working with businesses, community groups and individuals affected by the plans discussed in our book 'Tottenham's Trojan Horse?' to create displays, video installations, participatory activities and a conversation area for 'Who are ya?' at Tate Exchange. 'Who are ya?' will reflect on football, identity and art with many other groups and individuals taking part (please see Tate Exchange for details). We were contacted by the organiser because of our book 'Tottenham's Trojan Horse?' which explores social issues related to the new Tottenham Hotspur football stadium.

Photographer Steve Forrest has been taking photos of people in Love Lane Estate, Peacock Industrial Estate and other areas around the Tottenham Hotspur Football stadium. Prints of these images will be displayed during ‘Who are ya?’. Steve has been a regular contributor to the New York Times and The International Herald Tribune for the past ten years as well as working with Stern Magazine, The Guardian, Newsweek, and The Economist's Intelligent Life Magazine.

Mark Panton is working with Simon Devine, a producer at Commercials Unlimited, to create a video about the businesses on Peacock Industrial Estate. Some stills from the filming:

Copies of 'Tottenham's Trojan Horse?' will be on sale in the Tate Modern bookshop during the event. Individuals and communities in the area around the new Tottenham Hotspur Football stadium discussed in the book are continuing to protest and challenge regeneration plans that could require the demolition of their homes, shops and businesses. The images below were taken by Martin Ball at a protest on 14 July 2019

This post will be updated as information comes through. Information about our book and what we do is in other posts on this blog. You can email us via the contact form or send Amanda Lillywhite a DM on Twitter.
