You may have noticed that two central London billboards aren’t displaying traditional adverts this week. Instead, they’re showing anonymous testimonials from those arriving in London, and those moving away.
The responses were collected as part of the London is Changing research project, created by Central St Martins lecturer Rebecca Ross. The results give a snapshot of London’s diverse migration patterns – but the emphasis so far has been on people leaving London, often because of high housing prices .
We’ve collected together 24 of the billboards’ messages to give a flavour of the responses collected by the project so far. You can also read our interview with Ross, and discover more details about the project, here.
