People are invited to take part in two free workshops to celebrate the “hidden community” in Cricklewood and Willesden.
Writer Matilda Velevitch and photographer Rachel Lum have created the Broadway Exhibition, a project incorporating film and video currently on show at Willesden Green Heritage Gallery in the High Road.
On March 17 and 18 participants are invited to create and contribute their own 'life map' and knowledge of the area to be included in the project.
Over a series of months Rachel and Matilda photographed, interviewed and immersed themselves into their neighbourhood.
