Over the course of the project we interviewed a range of inspirational creatives. Our interviewees, who come from a range of creative disciplines, all have very strong connections to North Kensington: either growing up in the area; living here as young anarchists or bohemians in the sixties; or still living here now. Whether photographers or musicians, dancers or sculptors, one thing joins them all – they consider Ladbroke Grove extremely influential on their lives and work.
