Adopting Britain

I like stumbling on interesting exhibitions in London. One such impromptu visit was to ‘Adopting Britain’ at the South Bank Centre until September this year. Described on its website as ‘an interactive, accessible exhibition about immigration’, it’s a mix of photos, text, music and film tracing migration into the UK from the 1950s.

I especially enjoyed the short documentary and animation films that tell the stories of children and adults coming to Britain from Asia, Africa and Europe.

This cute note placed by an anonymous visitor on a ‘tree of thoughts’ caught my eye. The hidden word is, of course, ‘friends’.
