Sawfish / 2022
Lewisham’s call to action on climate emergency as part of its year as London Borough of Culture 2022 is something that unites us all. Pollution and urban development are causing substantial habitat destruction, and climate change is altering environmental conditions with devastating results.
In response to this, Trinity Laban’s 2022 Object in Focus is a display of magnificent sawfish rostra, a decreasing species that are significantly impacted by fishing and environmental changes.
The sawfish rostra will be on display in the Laban building between March – July 2022 and offer creative inspiration for Trinity Laban’s students, children, youth, and community groups throughout the summer term.
