Taking Care of Business:
Migrant Entrepreneurs and the Making of Modern Britain
Deft.Space collaborated with the Migration Museum to develop an exhibition design concept for an immersive exhibition in Lewisham Shopping Centre. The exhibition tells the stories of migrant entrepreneurs and how they have shaped modern Britain.
Using the cultural vibrancy of the high street as our conceptual starting point, we introduced framed openings into the different exhibition themes reminiscent of high street shop frontages. We also incorporated a ‘square’ to host a Migrant Makers Market as the threshold space between the Lewisham Shopping Centre’s walkway and the exhibition. The square then gives way to the internal high street of the exhibition.
Taking Care of Business is showing until March 2023.
