The project, Windrush Legacies, is designed to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Windrush through a contemporary lens. It considers the experiences of those who came to Britain during the Windrush period and the influence they’ve had on Britain’s creative and cultural landscape today, from the perspective of British-Caribbeans.

The video series will be available to watch in the South London Gallery’s Fox Reception on 24th and 25th June.


This special  interview series tells the stories of the Windrush generation and their descendants; showcasing the ever lasting impact that this iconic movement has had on the British cultural landscape that we exist in today, through the lens of legacy.



For the first of our interview of the series we had the pleasure of speaking with members
of London Senior Social to mark the very special #Windrush75 anniversary.
Featured in this interview is Ceta, Olive and Hope who all graciously shared with us
their Windrush stories and experiences as first-generation immigrants.


For the second episode of the series we spoke with Jennifer, who owns JB's Soul Food
in Peckham with her husband Bill. Beyond her business acumen, Jennifer is family
person through and through which is felt far and wide across the local community.
During our chat we discussed the importance of recognising this momentous
anniversary, her personal connection to the Windrush generation and how she'd like
JB's to be remembered among many other bits.


For the latest episode of our WINDRUSH LEGACIES interview series we caught up
with Saint Lucian born, London raised sister-duo Kimhia and Indira who founded the
online Language Academy Twossaints. The academy supports people in learning and
developing language with a primary focuses on preserving Kwéyòl for future
generations to come.

Beyond running Twossainst - which the sisters practically create all their own
resources for - Kimhia is also a graphic designer, model and advocate for sexual
health while Indira regularly performs poetry, models and facilitates creative wellbeing
and empowerment spaces for historically minoritised women.During our discussion
they shared their views on the Windrush generations colossal impact on Britain, their own
connection to the movement and the importance of legacy!


We had the privilege of hosting a panel discussion in collaboration with our dear friend, Ibou, Cofounder of Oscillation, for a special live edition of the WINDRUSH LEGACIES interview series in the 948 Living Room as part of Jumbi's 1st birthday celebration. Joined by esteemed London based creative and cultural leaders, Hak Baker, Lady Banton, and Rudi Minto De Wijs for a conversation that delved into the profound and enduring impact of the Windrush generation on the fabric of contemporary Britain. 

(1)948 GRANT

To mark our first birthday and the 75th anniversary of windrush, we are proud to announce the (1)948 windrush legacies grant.

This has been designed to commemorate the arrival of empire windrush and the profound legacy of a movement that we at 948 consider nothing short of revolutionary.

In honour of this, our grant seeks to fund one creative and cultural practitioner who are direct descendants of the Windrush generation. Its purpose is to celebrate the multi-faceted work of our community and allow the legacy of Windrush to continue under a new generation.


All profits made from the limited edition Windrush tee’s we’ve designed will be directly channeled into this initiative. Applications will open later this year and recipients of the (1)948 Windrush legacies grant will be awarded by a group of independent trustees in 2024.
