You Can't Move History: Film Screening and Q&A

Add to calendar

Long Live Southbank is a diverse, multi-generational grassroots organisation. Championing unique and youth-led direct action, the initial campaign to save the beloved home of British skateboarding from re-development was a success. The screening of the film, highlighting the struggle and course of political involvement shows the importance of the skate spot amongst its setting and the community. The after-showing drop-in will invite audiences to ask questions to better understand, and broaden the discussion around youth culture and advocacy.
