Almost 50 Questions on the Gentrification of Peckham June 2014

Almost 50 Questions on the Gentrification of Peckham
From: http://southwarknotes.wordpress.com/2014/06/01/almost-50-questions-on-the-gentrification-of-Peckham Here follows a set of questions based on the past, present and future of Peckham as it undergoes continuing pressures of regeneration and the accompanying gentrification. Like gentrification itself, this list contains numerous trick questions. There are questions that seek answers in historical fact but there are a whole lot more questions that are asked not for an answer but because the question itself says a whole lot more than any answer.
These questions are produced from a fatigue of long-term considering the question of art and gentrification and its willing and seemingly unwilling players.  In Peckham, as some artists slowly ponder any role they may have in its changes, it must be said that the story pre-dates their arrival although not the way they have been used to sell the area.  Go to the questions: http://southwarknotes.wordpress.com/2014/06/01/almost-50-questions-on-the-gentrification-of-peckham
