Cockney Conversations Month: 3rd March – 4th April 2022
The first Cockney Conversations month runs from Thursday 3rd March- Monday 4th April 2022 and kicks off with 6 online discussions on the significance of Cockney cultural heritage and how its adapted to physical, social and cultural changes taking places in the East End.
‘Cockney Cultures’ is a new initiative by Andy Green of Grow Social Capital CIC and Saif Osmani of the Bengali East End Heritage Society who feel that Cockney culture is ‘under threat’ due to immense physical, social and cultural changes taking place in the East End. Together, Andy and Saif have collaborated to come up with a programme led through historic research, training, and public events that they hope will help restore and celebrate this unique culture of East London.
