10 Brixtonites meet each other for a conversation about home, belonging and what heritage means to Brixton past and present. The 5 conversations reveal different perceptions of place, and the personal and communal connections they have found through living in Brixton. Reflecting through each other, the conversationalists often find common ground even through very different experiences of coming to Brixton.
