Mappery For the love of maps

Destination East Finchley

Anthony spotted this at East Finchley underground station.

The blurb says:

“Destination East Finchley is a community project, which began in 2017, led by Martin Primary School and funded by the Celebrate Lottery Fund. The project celebrates the journeys made by local residents to live here in the diverse community of East Finchley, N2.

Many of the stories were documented on the circular posterds by those who made the journey, or by their families. The postcards then inspired pupils at Martin Primary School to create poetry on the theme of migration, some of which are displayed here inside the birds.

Each dot on the map represents the place from where a local resident or family originates, reflecting the breath of migration to this small part of London. More Info
