Taking its title from William Morris's News from Nowhere, ‘...how is it towards the east?’ is a month-long exhibition comprising talks, workshops, screenings and new commissions at Calvert 22.
In collaboration with a host of local organisations and individuals this rich programme makes visible a body of research into the histories, both personal and collective, of the Calvert 22 building and surrounding area.
Fostering conversations around how histories are written and recorded in print and on screen ‘..how is it towards the east?’ critically examines modes of self-organisation and the traces of Eastern European and Russian immigration in the East End.
