Creative District portraits

Discover the diversity of Woolwich and its surrounding areas through an interactive photography exhibition commissioned by the Council. The series of portraits and interviews features residents, parents, children, young people, retirees, market traders, artists and many others from across the borough.

Many of the residents who took part were also interviewed and described where they were, what they were doing, their thoughts about Woolwich and what they think about the forthcoming Creative District.
